More than 10,000 tests need to be completed to prepare the LHC for a collision energy of 13 TeV.
On 12 January, the key to the LHC was symbolically handed back to the operations team.
This book is the proceedings of the International School of Subnuclear Physics, ISSP 2012, 50th Course, held in Erice on 23 June–2 July 2012.
As the re-starting of the LHC approaches, teams at CERN continue their preparations.
The high electric-field gradients that can be set up in plasma have offered the promise of compact particle accelerators since the late 1970s.
The process to cool down the LHC continues in the final stage of the first long shutdown.
The absolute luminosity at a particle collider is not only an important figure of merit for the machine, it is also a necessity for determining the absolute cross-sections for reaction processes.
For the first time, the gradient specification of the International Linear Collider (ILC) design study of 31.5 MV/m has been achieved on average across an entire ILC-type cryomodule made of ILC-grade...
The Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) at Brookhaven National Laboratory completed its 14th physics run in July, during which gold-ion beams were brought into collision at both low (7.3 GeV/nucl...
