Former CERN physicist Christian Fabjan takes a whirlwind tour of 60 years of innovation in particle-detection technology at CERN and beyond.
Experiments have the potential to explore open questions in QCD and to search for hidden-sectors in which dark matter does not couple directly to Standard Model particles.
A strong tradition of innovation and ingenuity shows that, for CERN’s North Area, life really does begin at 40.
