While the 27 km tunnel for the LEP electron–positron collider at CERN was being prepared, the Courier described non-evaporable getters used for its vacuum system.
The giant 1.5 T superconducting solenoid for the ALEPH experiment at LEP demanded special tooling for winding, impregnation, fitting and transport, as the July 1987 issue reported.
With construction of the Super Proton Synchrotron in full swing, the May 1975 issue of the Courier published a progress report on its vacuum and radio-frequency systems.
In November 1972, CERN’s Roger Calder described in detail the unprecedented vacuum system of the world’s first hadron collider, the Intersecting Storage Rings.
In the summer of 1960, the Courier compared and contrasted the 600 MeV Synchrocyclotron and the 28 GeV Proton Synchrotron
