CERN Courier: July/August 2005

Cover of CERN Courier Volume 45 Issue 6


Lattice QCD and CLEO-c tackle the CP challenge

New results presented at Lepton-Photon 2005 provide important tests of the predictive powers of lattice calculations of parameters vital in the study of CP violation.

Fred Hoyle: pioneer in nuclear astrophysics

Fred Hoyle, who died in 2001, is best known as a cosmologist. But, as Simon Mitton relates, his career in physics began with the weak interaction and moved on to a crucial discovery in nuclear physics.

Thinking big: the next generation of detectors

The conference on the Next Generation of Nucleon Decay and Neutrino Detectors looked at the development of new, large-scale detectors. Alain de Bellefon reports.

40 great years of the Rencontres de Moriond

"Theorists and experimenters must listen to each other." This leitmotif inspired the first Rencontres de Moriond in 1966, and it was just as relevant at this year's event.

Telescope takes next step to high-energy frontier

In April, while Lake Baikal in Siberia was iced over, the neutrino telescope 1.1 km below the surface was successfully upgraded with three additional strings. Renamed NT200+ it is tailored to search for diffuse fluxes of cosmic neutrinos at energies of peta-electron-volts.

ClearPET offers improved insight into animal brains

An efficient new PET scanner for the small animal brain, developed by the Crystal Clear collaboration, is now in production.


Summer Bookshelf

Summer for physicists is traditionally the season of conferences as well as (or instead of!) well earned holidays. In this issue Bookshelf presents a selection of less technical books for reading in quieter moments, whether on the beach or on long plane journeys - or indeed for family and friends to read to learn more about the world of particle physics.
