Superconducting tunnel junctions have been developed as photon-counting spectroscopic detectors for ground- and space based astrophysical research. Arrays of tantalum-based junctions have now reache...
The first major contract for the CMS experiment at CERN's LHC was completed last month when the last of 120 forged iron blocks rolled off the production line at the Izhora factory, St Petersburg.
In Experimental Hall B at the Jefferson Laboratory, Newport News, Virginia, the CEBAF Large Acceptance Spectrometer has opened a new "window" on the building blocks of matter: mesons, nuclei and n...
The coil winding for the central solenoid magnet of the forthcoming ATLAS experiment at CERN's Large Hadron Collider has been completed.
In the search for optimal performance under difficult conditions, experiments for CERN's LHC are exploiting new technologies.
High-energy physicists are proud that their instrumentation, which was developed for their research, has widespread applications in other fields.
NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center is coordinating a study, by an international collaboration, of a high-energy cosmic-ray instrument for the International Space Station.
A new facility is set to join the CERN experimental programme from April 2000.
The world's largest superconducting solenoid magnet for the CMS experiment at CERN's LHC collider recently took an important step towards completion when the first ring of its barrel yoke was ass...
During the recent PANIC99 particle/nuclear physics conference, CELSIUS/WASA, a new detector facility for the CELSIUS cooler storage ring, was inaugurated.
