The TOTEM experiment (TOTal Elastic and diffractive cross section Measurement) is one of the seven detector experiments at CERN's Large Hadron Collider. The other six are: ATLAS, ALICE, CMS, LHCb, LHCf, and MoEDAL. It shares an interaction point with CMS. The detector aims at measurement of total cross section, elastic scattering, and diffractive processes.
