During the next two years of long-shutdown two (LS2), the LHC and its injectors will be tuned up for high-luminosity operations.
Scientists have determined the ionisation potentials from fermium to lawrencium, confirming the filling of the 5f shell in the heavy actinides.
One of the biggest challenges for the CMS collaboration during LS2 is to prepare its detector for the HL-LHC.
New wheel-shaped detectors that allow a better trigger and measurement capability for muons are among numerous transformations taking place.
The LHCb detector is to be totally rebuilt in time for the restart of LHC operations.
The ALICE experiment is being upgraded to make even more precise measurements of extreme nuclear matter
An international team has made an advance towards more compact particle accelerators, demonstrating that beams can be focused via a technique called active plasma lensing without reducing the beam qua...
Two independent groups are going to Earth’s extremes to make unprecedented measurements for physics, education and the environment.
This year’s Nobel Prize in Physics was shared between three researchers for groundbreaking inventions in laser physics. Half the prize went to Arthur Ashkin of Bell Laboratories in the US for his wo...
CHARM, a unique facility at CERN to test electronics in complex radiation environments, has been used to test its first full space system: a micro-satellite called CELESTA, developed by CERN in collab...
