Features

Right on target: CNGS gets off to an excellent start

Six years after its construction began, the CNGS facility at CERN has sent its first batch of neutrinos 732 km to Gran Sasso in Italy in a highly successful commissioning run.

OPERA makes its debut under the Gran Sasso

After three years of construction, the OPERA experiment has detected the first neutrinos from CNGS, and an automated production and assembly line is in full swing to complete the detector so that its full search for the appearance of tau neutrinos can begin.

Hawking brings the origins of the universe to CERN

During a week-long visit to CERN's Theory Unit to discuss his current research, Stephen Hawking visited the LHC, gave a well attended general lecture and talked to CERN Courier.

LBNL celebrates its 75th anniversary with style

The lab that began life as the home of Lawrence's 27 inch cyclotron has grown into a multi-disciplinary research centre with a promising future. Spencer Klein takes a look at LBNL on the occasion of its 75th anniversary.

PHYSTAT tackles the significance problem

Physicists and statisticians met in Banff for the latest PHYSTAT workshop, where they discussed how to tackle upper limits, significance and separating signal from background.

POSIPOL 2006 lines up options for ILC and CLIC

Experts from around the world came to CERN to discuss the production of polarized positrons for future linear colliders, using the Compton back-scattering technique.

Exotic atoms cast light on fundamental questions

A workshop in Trento explored how experiments on exotic atoms, deeply bound kaonic states and antihydrogen provide a low-energy route to addressing fundamental physics.
