The European Spallation Source will provide neutron beams 100 times brighter than those from reactor sources, enabling new research into material properties and fundamental physics.
Advanced neutron facilities such as the Institut Laue-Langevin are gearing up to enable a deeper understanding of the structural workings of SARS-CoV-2.
The result could shape policies for reducing urban particle pollution.
CERN’s CLOUD experiment has merged the best of particle physics and atmospheric science into a novel experimental approach, says spokesperson Jasper Kirkby.
The need at CERN to align components within a fraction of a millimetre demands skills and tools beyond the scope of normal surveyor jobs.
With atomically thin active sensing components, graphene-based Hall probes incur reduced systematic errors.
3000 accelerator specialists gathered in cyber-space for the 11th International Particle Accelerator Conference.
The recent closure of reactors means making the most of existing facilities while preparing accelerator-based sources, says Helmut Schober.
The proposal, led by physicists and engineers from LHCb, is one of several being developed to meet growing demand for ventilators.
Researchers at Diamond Light Source and other synchrotron facilities are using intense X-rays to decipher the biochemical and structural makeup of the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
