CERN Courier magazine: September 2016 digital edition

Cern Courier

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

As the LHC continues with its record-breaking 2016 performance, a new “super-B factory” designed to search for new weak interactions in the flavour sector – Belle II at SuperKEKB – is nearing completion at the KEK laboratory in Japan. The inauguration of the MAX IV light source in Sweden, meanwhile, showcases another machine milestone: a novel lattice design that produces the brightest X-rays on Earth. Sticking with the accelerator theme, we also report on an attempt to use a storage ring to pinpoint the electric dipole moment of particles. Finally, the CMS collaboration describes how a new trigger system is taming the harsh collision environment of LHC Run 2, while CERN considers how to deal with the computing and data challenges presented by its major machine upgrade, the HL-LHC.
