APPOINTMENTS & AWARDS EPS introduces new Lise Meitner prize Peter Armbruster Muenzenberg The Nuclear Physics Board of the European Physical Society has created a new prize – called the Lise Meitner prize – for nuclear science with sponsorship […]

Every year, several hundred talented specialists, most of them young, experience working
in CERN’s unique atmosphere. What they learn during this time provides a springboard
for their careers, as well as furthering science and promoting technology exchange
throughout Europe and further afield.

Extremely accurate experiments can be conducted when particles and nuclei are
delicately guided using electric and magnetic fields. A recent conference surveyed the
range of such research under way around the world.

Since the discovery of X-rays, fundamental physics has been a source of ideas for
radiography and medical imaging. A new imaging method firmly rooted in particle
physics was chosen by Time magazine as one of its “Inventions of the Year
2000”.

After 40 years of research, physicists met at the First International Workshop on
the Radio Detection of High Energy Particles to discuss the detection of high-energy
cosmic rays and neutrinos using radio waves. Peter Gorham and David
Saltzberg
report.

Advances in physics go hand in hand with those in experimental techniques, and
increasingly so with progress in computing and analysis. A recent workshop at Fermilab
surveyed this fast-developing area, which has impact far beyond physics alone.
