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.
Paolo Chiggiato describes the unparalleled vacuum developments that underpin CERN’s science.
Muon colliders are both precision and discovery machines, but significant R&D is required before they can be considered candidates for a next collider.
Major savings in the energy consumption and cost of accelerators are there for the taking, with potential impact beyond particle physics.
Experts from around the world met for the second ALEGRO workshop, to discuss advanced linear-collider concepts at the energy frontier.
Around 100 delegates joined a co-innovation workshop in Liverpool to discuss the strategic R&D programme for a Future Circular Collider.
Physicists used a novel scheme to channel 850 TW laser pulses through a 20 cm-long plasma, allowing electron beams to be accelerated to an energy of 7.8 GeV – almost double the previous record...
