CERN Courier: November 2016
Advanced scintillating materials have found their way into novel detectors for physics and medicine.
Compact Linear Collider focuses on an optimised initial-energy stage at 380 GeV.
A new study group will investigate novel use of CERN’s accelerator complex to target fundamental-physics questions.
Interview with Kip Thorne, who predicted LIGO’s observation of gravitational waves.
