Superconducting magnet technology has fuelled some of the greatest discoveries in high-energy physics and is at the core of existing and next-generation circular particle accelerators, writes Luca Bot...
The meeting marked the final event of the Horizon 2020 project to produce a conceptual design study for a 100 TeV circular hadron collider.
LEP was the highest energy e+e– collider ever built, with levels of precision that remain unsurpassed in accelerator physics. Former CERN director of accelerators Steve Myers tells LEP’s story fro...
John Osborne, Alexandra Tudora and Ben Swatton survey the geological, environmental and technical constraints of a post-LHC collider.
Researchers in the US have demonstrated an advanced accelerator dipole magnet with a field of 14.1 T.
Embedded radio-frequency (RF) cavities such as those featured in spiral-shaped cooling channels are one example.
Projects include new designs for MRI gradient coils, the design of 14 and 16 T MRI magnets, and a conceptual design for new mammography magnets.
The scientific programme was bookended by local Australian-grown talent.
High-frequency superconducting radio-frequency cavities made from niobium–tin alloy are more efficient than conventional niobium designs.
The uncertainty of several ATLAS Run-1 measurements was dominated by systematic uncertainty on the integrated luminosity.
