CERN Courier: July/August 1999

Cover of CERN Courier Volume 39 Issue 6



Edited by Emma Sanders


Fundamental physics in space

What better way of launching science in the new millennium than embarking on a programme of fundamental physics research in space? Maurice Jacob looks at existing plans and new possibilities.

How Martin Luther King almost came to Fermilab

At his 80th birthday event at Fermilab, former laboratory deputy director, Ned Goldwasser, recalled Fermilab's early days, when human rights were as important as protons.

Muon ring could act as a neutrino factory

Neutrinos have always been in the particle physics spotlight. However, with new machine ideas opening up the possibility of intense neutrino sources, this area of research could go on to reveal further insights into the weakly interacting particles, thereby complementing the detailed knowledge of the quark sector.

The Graal of particle physics

A new particle physics experiment uses a very different setting ­ the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility electron ring in Grenoble.

Electron clouds with copper linings

Energy loss through synchrotron radiation is the bane of circular high-energy electron accelerators, which is one reason why CERN's next accelerator, the Large Hadron Collider will be accelerating protons. Nevertheless, synchrotron radiation at the Large Hadron Collider still has to be considered carefully.
