After 40 years of research, physicists met at the First International Workshop on the Radio Detection of High Energy Particles to discuss the detection of high-energy cosmic rays and neutrinos using...
The CERN Solar Axion Telescope, CAST, aims to shed light on a 30-year-old riddle of particle physics by detecting axions originating from the 15 million degree plasma in the Sun's core.
The first part of the end-cap toroid system for the mighty ATLAS experiment, which is under preparation for CERN's Large Hadron Collider, will soon be on the road to CERN.
The DESY laboratory in Hamburg has accepted a proposal from the HERA-B experiment for a revised programme of research.
As well as being important in particle physics, multiwire detectors have been applied in other fields: X-rays for medical imaging, ultraviolet and single-photon detection, neutron and crystal diffrac...
The latest generation of high-precision experiments is bringing observers one step closer to detecting the elusive song of gravity waves.
A recent meeting in Bolivia looked at the possibilities of mounting new physics instrumentation at the highest-altitude laboratory in the world. Larry Jones reports.
Research institutes all over the world are busy providing components for the experiments at CERN's Large Hadron Collider.
The conditions at CERN's Large Hadron Collider pose severe challenges for the designers and builders of front-end, trigger and data acquisition electronics. A recent workshop reviewed the encouraging...
