A potentially cost-saving and performance-enhancing new approach to fabricating superconducting radiofrequency (SRF) accelerating cavities has been demonstrated by the Institute for Superconducting Ra...
The CMS experiment, under construction for the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN, recently took delivery of its 10,000th vacuum phototriode (VPT), to be used in the Electromagnetic Endcap Calorimete...
The ERL2005 Workshop at Jefferson Lab in March - the first of its kind - reviewed an innovative use of electron linacs in light sources and, potentially, particle colliders.
The ever-increasing high-technology requirements of particle-physics research provide a fertile ground for CERN's Technology Transfer Group, as Beatrice Bressan describes.
In February, 120 physicists travelled to the mountain village of La Thuile in Italy to discuss results and perspectives in particle physics. Michael Koratzinos reports.
Bart Van de Vyver relates his experience of technology transfer when he left CERN to create a start-up company exploiting biotechnology research.
Three teams, in the UK, the US and France, have reported breakthroughs in the laser-driven plasma acceleration of electrons.
After 50 years in waiting, fixed-field alternating-gradient accelerators are at last being built - for a wide variety of applications. Michael Craddock reports on the current status.
The second International Conference on Imaging Technologies in Biomedical Sciences (ITBS) was held on 26-30 May in Athens and on the island of Milos, Greece. The conference was organized by the Greek ...
A proposed new facility, called LUX, will be able to combine accelerator and laser systems to study ultrafast dynamics across a wide range of sciences.
