CERN Courier: July/August 2004
A recent meeting at Jefferson Lab has inaugurated a new biennial workshop on reducing operating costs and increasing stability and reliability in a new generation of refrigeration plants for superconducting accelerators. Steven Corneliussen reports.
Different technologies come together in the gas pixel detector, a device that for the first time brings very high resolving power to gas detectors, as Ronaldo Bellazzini explains.
A recent workshop in Frascati highlighted some of the exciting possibilities for future developments in channelling particle beams in ordered structures.
The 30th anniversary of the proton accelerator complex at PSI heralds the start of a new generation of particle-physics experiments, with the search for the decay of the muon to a positron and a photon.
After 50 years in waiting, fixed-field alternating-gradient accelerators are at last being built - for a wide variety of applications. Michael Craddock reports on the current status.
Horst Wenninger pieces together many of the aspects that made the bubble-chamber programme an important part of CERN's development as an international laboratory.
Online isotope separation combined with some imaginative accelerator "gymnastics" could provide a high-intensity neutrino beam at CERN. Steve Hancock describes a possible scenario.
