Shortly after midday on 30 March, protons circulated in the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) for the first time in 2018. Following its annual winter shutdown for maintenance and upgrades, the machine now e...
Advanced radio-frequency crab cavities are under tests for the high-luminosity LHC upgrade
Niobium–copper accelerating cavities are beginning to challenge their bulk-niobium counterparts
Powerfult linear-accelerator technology developed for fundamental exploration is being transferred to applications beyond high-energy physics
This year the CLIC workshop focused on preparations for the update of the European Strategy for Particle Physics in 2019–2020.
Second Future Circular Collider (FCC) physics workshop held at CERN
Since 4 December, around 500 technicians and engineers have been working flat-out to maintain and upgrade the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) and other parts of the CERN accelerator complex. The current y...
The CBETA multi-turn energy-recovery linac aims to combine the best of linear and circular accelerators
That is half the energy set out five years ago in the ILC’s technical design report (TDR), shortening the length of the previous design (31 km) by around a third and slashing its cost by up to 40%.
At 10.50 a.m. on 22 November 2017, the third-generation light source SESAME in Jordan produced its first X-ray photons, signalling the start of the regional laboratory’s experimental program. Resea...
