Antiprotons returned to CERN’s Antiproton Decelerator (AD) on 5 August and experiments have been receiving beams since mid-September, following an intensive consolidation programme during the first...
It looks like a small black button, but in tests at Fermilab’s High-Brightness Electron Source Lab it has produced beam currents greater than those generated with a large laser system.
On 9–10 September, representatives of about 70 institutes worldwide met at CERN to establish the International Collaboration Board (ICB) at the Future Circular Collider (FCC) study.

Work continues apace to ready the Super Proton Synchrotron (SPS) for its planned October restart, while beams are already being delivered to experiments at the Proton Synchrotron (PS) and PS Booster.
Work progresses on Linac4, the linear accelerator foreseen to take over from the current Linac2 as injector to the PS Booster. On 5 August, the first drift-tube linac (DTL) tank saw beams at 12 MeV
The National Synchrotron Light Source II (NSLS-II) is currently being commissioned at Brookhaven National Laboratory.
Following the restart of the first elements in CERN’s accelerator complex in June, beams are now being delivered to experiments from the Proton Synchrotron (PS) and the PS Booster.
