While proton-proton collisions will be the principal diet of CERN's LHC machine, heavy-ion collisions will also be on the menu. The ALICE experiment will be ready and waiting.
A new device that can operate in close proximity to highly sensitive superconducting sensors could open up new detector possibilities.
Covering a volume of 17 000 metres cubic, the muon system of the ATLAS experiment at CERN's Large Hadron Collider will be one of the largest particle detector systems ever built.
Claus Grupen reviews in 2000 The Physics of Particle Detection.
Imagine trying to record a symphony in a second. That is effectively what CERN's ALICE collaboration will have to do when the laboratory's forthcoming Large Hadron Collider (LHC) starts up in 2005.
For many years, physicists searching for and studying delicate physics effects have been working in the shelter of large underground installations. Now the ocean too is the scene of new physics dev...
Both D0 and the Tevatron are currently undergoing major upgrades prior to the next run, which is set for March 2001.
The collaboration for the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment at CERN's future LHC collider will base its tracker entirely on silicon sensor technology using fine feature size electronics.
In a move that underlines the growing requirement for sophisticated hardware for precision physics experiments in space, NASA has announced an award to Stanford University for the development of the...
The Cold War once absorbed a tremendous amount of resources and talent on both sides of the Iron Curtain. Particle physics is now at the forefront of a major, international effort that is refocusing...
