Features

High-energy conference highlights precision results

This year's Rochester International Conference on High Energy Physics, held in Amsterdam, provided a showcase for precision results, and pointed the way forward for particle physics at future facilities. Paula Collins and Piet Mulders report.

Neutrino discoveries lead to precision measurements

The science of neutrino physics has reached a watershed, with discovery giving way to precision measurements. Michael Altmann reports from the XXth International Conference on Neutrino Physics and Astrophysics.

Physicists and the decision to drop the bomb

At the University of Chicago's 2001 reunion in honour of Enrico Fermi, Nina Byers gave a talk entitled "Fermi and Szilard". This article is adapted from the original talk.

Fermilab: a laboratory at the frontier of research

Since its foundation in 1967, creeping urbanization has taken away some of Fermilab's remoteness, but the famous buffalo still roam, and farm buildings evocative of frontier America dot the landscape - appropriately for a laboratory at the high-energy frontier of modern research.

How European physics reached across the Wall

In the early 1960s, East German physicists collaborated with CERN, despite the restrictions that existed as a result of the Berlin Wall. Thomas Stange, author of a book on the history of the Zeuthen laboratory near East Berlin, tells the tale.

More to physics than meets the eye

Handling, presenting and understanding the complex track patterns produced in the collisions of high-energy particles calls for considerable ingenuity. Gordon Fraser talks to CERN collision display specialist Hans Drevermann.

Regulars

Viewpoint: Berkeley Lab: evolving for the future

Originally an accelerator laboratory, LBNL now covers a broad range of fields. Deputy director Pier Oddone outlines the vibrancy of the multidisciplinary approach.
