CERN Courier: January/February 2003
It's taken a while, but the world's highest-energy accelerator is back. Fermilab's Tevatron proton-antiproton collider is once again exploring the high-energy frontier, with newly upgraded detectors and a physics programme that will address some of the biggest questions in particle physics.
Some 400 theorists and experimentalists gathered at DESY in June 2002 for the SUSY02 conference to discuss aspects of supersymmetry and the prospects for unification physics. Jan Louis and Peter Zerwas report the conference highlights.
3D silicon detectors offer exciting new approaches to imaging for particle physics and other fields. Cinzia DaVia' explains.
The ASACUSA collaboration has reinforced its status as a paragon of precision physics by following up its impressive six parts in 108 measurement of the antiproton's charge and mass with new measurements of its magnetism. John Eades reports.
TRIUMF supports a broad range of research at the world's largest cyclotron, as well as coordinating Canadian contributions to international particle physics.
The mysterious quantity that is spin took centre stage at Brookhaven for the SPIN2002 meeting last September. Yousef Makdisi and Thomas Roser report.
Northeastern University's programme of research experience for US undergraduates at CERN is five years old. Suzanne Harvey takes a look at its impact.
European Space Agency astronaut Christer Fuglesang explains how his training in particle physics at CERN prepared him for a career in space.
