CERN Courier: May 2004

Cover of CERN Courier Volume 44 Issue 4

Features

CERN's giant fridge

The first stage of the refrigeration system for the Large Hadron Collider is now installed and ready for the initial cooling tests in 2005, as Laurent Tavian describes.

There's plenty of room at the top

Space is the ultimate laboratory for fundamental physics and the possibility of holding experiments there was the theme of the SpacePart '03 conference. Roberto Battiston reports.

The W and Z at LEP

The Large Electron Positron collider made significant contributions to the process of establishing the Standard Model as the basis for matter and forces, and also built a platform for physics scenarios beyond the model.

ISOLDE goes on the trail of superlatives

The superlarge nuclei studied at CERN's ISOLDE facility can now vie for attention with the superdeformed and the superheavy, as David Lunney explains.

Space goes quantum at Stony Brook

Does a melting crystal provide the key to developing a quantum description of gravity? Advances at the first Simons Workshop point to a connection.

ASACUSA enters a new world of precision

The antiproton may soon be better known than the proton, and an ion that is more hydrogen-like than hydrogen may become the subject of high-precision laser spectroscopy experiments. John Eades describes an exotic future.

Viewpoint: Smaller institutes look to gain from scientific fallout

Alexandru Mihul believes that the distribution of data from large laboratories to smaller institutes for longer term analysis has benefits for all.
