Features

Looking forward to physics at Tevatron Run II

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.

Supersymmetry reviewed from the past to the future

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.

Radiation hard silicon detectors lead the way

3D silicon detectors offer exciting new approaches to imaging for particle physics and other fields. Cinzia DaVia' explains.

ASACUSA measures microwave transition in antiprotonic helium

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: the home of Canadian subatomic physics

TRIUMF supports a broad range of research at the world's largest cyclotron, as well as coordinating Canadian contributions to international particle physics.

In a spin at Brookhaven

The mysterious quantity that is spin took centre stage at Brookhaven for the SPIN2002 meeting last September. Yousef Makdisi and Thomas Roser report.

CERN summer experience benefits US students

Northeastern University's programme of research experience for US undergraduates at CERN is five years old. Suzanne Harvey takes a look at its impact.
