CERN Courier magazine: May 2016 digital edition

Cern Courier

Welcome to the digital edition of the May 2016 issue of CERN Courier

The focus of this issue is “luminosity”. Achieving unprecedented luminosities in the LHC is the goal of the HL-LHC upgrade project, which is featured in the Viewpoint and in one of the central articles, now that the first components are undergoing successful tests. The collision rate is crucial when looking at rare events, and past experiments know this well, as the feature about the Tevatron legacy explains. Luminosity is also a vital design parameter for any future accelerator, including the ILC featured in this issue. The News section reports on new results recently presented by the LHC experiments, including the world’s most precise measurements and search for the X(5568) tetraquark candidate by LHCb. A variety of events, appointments and awards in Faces & Places complete this issue, which goes to print while the LHC is bringing beams back to collision for the continuation of Run 2.
