The technical systems for CERN's forthcoming Large Hadron Collider (LHC) reached an important milestone earlier this year with the successful commissioning of String 2 - a chain of prototype LHC magn...
For future electron-positron linear colliders, high-intensity electron and positron beams are needed.
In a major boost for future plans, an international team based at DESY has achieved maximum light amplification from a free-electron laser (FEL) for ultraviolet radiation.
A model set up at Munich’s Ludwig-Maximilians University has for the first time achieved a high level of “crystallization” of particle beams in a ring. The particles orbiting in conv...
Radiofrequency (RF) electric fields provide the motive power for high-energy accelerators.
Cornell University in New York managed for a long time to keep pace with major national laboratories. Experiments at Cornell provided many important contributions to the physics of B-mesons - parti...
Lucio Rossi reviews in 2001 Superconducting Materials for High Energy Colliders.
After coming into operation last year, CERN's Antiproton Decelerator (AD) has got up to speed for physics this year.
A second ring is now being planned for the Beijing Electron-Positron Collider (BEPC) at the Institute of High Energy Physics (IHEP).
The 4 km circumference Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) at the Brookhaven Laboratory is now running at its full design nucleon collision energy of 200 GeV and physics expectations are high.
