CERN Courier: January/February 2007

Cover of CERN Courier Volume 47 Issue 1


Recent ISOLDE results revisit parity violation

Results from a recent measurement at CERN's ISOLDE facility are a tribute to the announcement 50 years ago of the first observation of the non-conservation of parity.

SN1987A heralds the start of neutrino astronomy

In 1987, detectors recorded a neutrino pulse emitted by SN1987A. Masayuki Nakahata, who found the signal in Kamiokande, looks at the ongoing legacy of this historic event.

Quadripôles: un transfert réussi vers l'industrie

Le dernier quadripôle principal pour le LHC a été livré au CERN. La fabrication de ces aimants complexes, dans le cadre de la contribution exceptionnelle de la France au LHC, est le fruit d'une collaboration entre le CERN et le CEA-Saclay, et d'un transfert de technologie dans l'industrie.

SSS: le pari gagnant de la collaboration

Réalisée dans le cadre de la contribution exceptionnelle de la France au LHC, la conception des sections droites courtes (SSS) est le fruit d'une collaboration entre le CNRS et le CERN. La production industrielle, réintégrée sur le site du CERN, prend fin.

Rooted in symmetry: Yang reflects on a life of physics

During his latest visit to CERN, Nobel laureate Chen Ning Yang talked to CERN Courier about some of his early work, his impressions of the LHC and his thoughts about the future of physics.

Physicists gather for an extravaganza of beauty

Lively discussions and precise measurements dominated Beauty 2006, the latest international conference on B-physics. Neville Harnew and Guy Wilkinson report.

Uppsala brings neutrino telescopes back to Earth

Physicists met in Uppsala to consider how the next generation of high-energy neutrino detectors can contribute to new physics as well as to study cosmic phenomena.
