CERN Courier magazine: May 2015 digital edition

Cern Courier

Welcome to the digital edition of the May 2015 issue of CERN Courier

After the first long shutdown, proton beams are back in the LHC, CERN's flagship accelerator. This follows two years of intense maintenance and consolidation work to prepare the machine for operation at 6.5 TeV per beam. During the shutdown, the experiments were also hives of activity. This issue looks at the many challenging tasks undertaken on CMS and ALICE in preparation for Run 2, which will see not only higher energies but also higher intensities. Celebration of the International Year of Light continues with a report on the new, brighter light source at the Brookhaven National Laboratory.
