CERN Courier: January/February 2001

Cover of CERN Courier Volume 41 Issue 1


Pulling the trigger on LHC electronics

The conditions at CERN's Large Hadron Collider pose severe challenges for the designers and builders of front-end, trigger and data acquisition electronics. A recent workshop reviewed the encouraging progress so far and discussed what remains to be done.

Mapping chaos in particle revolutions

Over the past decade the technique of frequency map analysis, developed to study astronomical systems, has shown its value in an increasing number of areas, including the analysis of particle orbits in accelerators.

HEP electronic publishing takes off

Scientific communication is now virtually instantaneous, with scientists able to download book-quality versions of papers. High-energy physics has been in the eye of this publishing storm - witness the World Wide Web developed at CERN. Now a new electronic journal developed for high-energy physics could be a role model for other new ventures.

High energies and high altitudes

A recent meeting in Bolivia looked at the possibilities of mounting new physics instrumentation at the highest-altitude laboratory in the world. Larry Jones reports.

Can carbon nanotubes handle high-energy particles?

New types of materials suggest new ways of handling high-energy particle beams, but can carbon nanotubes handle high-energy particles? Specialists from Yerevan outline the possibilities.
