CERN Courier: December 2004

Cover of CERN Courier Volume 44 Issue 10


ISOLDE goes from strength to strength

In 1964 CERN took the initiative to develop the means for studying short-lived nuclei. Forty years on, ISOLDE continues to be a world-leading facility for research with radioactive beams.

CEBAF set to double energy

Jefferson Lab is aiming to further studies of strongly interacting matter by upgrading the Continuous Electron Beam Accelerator Facility to 12 GeV and adding a fourth experimental hall. Steven Corneliussen reports.

Jefferson Lab's journey into the nucleus

Experiments at the boundary of nuclear physics and particle physics are providing a clearer view of the nucleus in terms of the basic quarks and gluons, as Douglas Higinbotham describes.

A November revolution: the birth of a new particle

Frank Close goes back 30 years to when he first heard of the remarkable results from Brookhaven and SLAC that heralded the discovery of the fourth quark, charm.

Framing Lorentz symmetry

Experimentalists and theorists from around the world recently gathered at Indiana University to exchange the latest findings from their experiments in the search for the violation of Lorentz symmetry.


Christmas Bookshelf

In this festive season, Bookshelf looks beyond the usual specializations in particle physics, to books that are intended for the general public and which deal with a broader range of topics. Here, several people who have been involved with education and communication at CERN review books they would consider buying as presents for family or friends.

Viewpoint: Particle physics in 2054

Luciano Maiani, former director-general of CERN, looks into a "very cloudy" crystal ball and argues the case for a future global accelerator network.
