CERN Courier: November 2006
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
