Since its birth 25 years ago, the time projection chamber has developed into a mature technology that is used in many fields, as Spencer Klein describes.
The MAGIC telescope was inaugurated on 10 October on the Canary Island of La Palma.
With the completion of its 100th surface detector at the end of October, the Pierre Auger Observatory became the largest cosmic-ray air-shower array in the world.
On 25 September the two large coils for the ALICE dipole magnet arrived at Point 2 of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) after a 1200 km journey from their manufacturer.
Now that the civil engineering is complete, the cavern for the ATLAS detector at the LHC is ready for the complex business of installing the detector, as Robert Eisenstein explains.
Germanium crystals have long been used to study photons with energies from 50 keV to 10 MeV. Their excellent energy resolution (approaching 0.1%) has created numerous applications in nuclear and parti...
On 14 August, after four years of mining, construction and testing, the Main Injector Neutrino Oscillation Search (MINOS) collaboration announced the start-up of its 5400 tonne neutrino detector in th...
Collisions of lead ions at the LHC will take heavy-ion physics into a new high-energy regime.
Giorgio Chiarelli reports from the 9th Pisa Meeting on Advanced Detectors, held this year on the island of Elba.
The ATLAS cavern has become the first new experimental cavern for the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) to be handed over to CERN by civil-engineering contractors.
