CERN Courier: December 2017

Cover of CERN Courier Volume 57 Issue 10


Gravitational waves and the birth of a new science

The era of multi-messenger astronomy is here, calling for next-generation gravitational-wave observatories.

Hyperfine structure: from hydrogen to antihydrogen

The ASACUSA experiment at CERN’s Antiproton Decelerator published the most precise in-beam measurement of the hydrogen ground-state hyperfine splitting.

Reaching out from the European school

The CERN–JINR European School of High-Energy Physics marks 25 years of teaching advanced topics in particle physics.

Charting a course for advanced accelerators

Applying next-generation plasma acceleration techniques to high-energy physics requires a global effort.
