CERN Courier magazine: April 2014 digital edition

Cern Courier

Welcome to the digital edition of the April 2014 issue of CERN Courier

It is 60 years since a proton beam was first used to treat cancer at the Berkeley cyclotron. Since then, research has spread to other countries and other beams, notably carbon ions. In February, experts at the ICTR-PHE 2014 conference in Geneva discussed current progress in using these and other techniques derived from nuclear and particle physics in the service of medicine.

It is 80 years since two theoretical physicists first calculated the neutrino cross-section and concluded that "there is no practically possible way of observing neutrinos". Forty years later, measurements of neutrinos by the Gargamelle team at CERN helped to reveal the quark structure of matter. Now, another 40 years later, the MINERvA experiment at Fermilab continues a long tradition at the two labs in studying neutrinos.
