CERN Courier: May 2018

Cover of CERN Courier Volume 58 Issue 4


Crab kicks for brighter collisions

Advanced radio-frequency crab cavities are to be tested for the first time in a proton beam, a vital step towards the high-luminosity LHC upgrade.

The long march of niobium on copper

Niobium–copper accelerating cavities, once the pinnacle of radio-frequency technology at CERN, are back in business and beginning to challenge the performance of their bulk-niobium counterparts.

Tales of TRIUMF

Founded 50 years ago to meet research needs that no single university could provide, Canada’s premier accelerator laboratory continues to drive discoveries.
