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.
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.
