Souped up RF

Behind the size, complexity and physics goals of particle accelerators such as the LHC lies a simple physics principle worked out by Maxwell more than 150 years ago: when a charged particle passes th...

Physics resumes at LHC

First stable beams in the LHC were declared on 23 May, just 25 days after the first beam was injected and almost three weeks ahead of schedule. Since then, interleaved with physics operation and remai...

FAIR forges its future

Supernova explosions, neutron-star mergers and rare radioactive ions might not seem to have much connection to terrestrial matters. Yet, while the lightest elements were synthesised immediately after ...
