The Monopole, Astrophysics and Cosmic Ray Observatory (MACRO) is an underground muon detector at Gran Sasso, which is now adding to the evidence for neutrino oscillations.
Marking the emergence of Korea as a major player on the world physics scene, the Korea Detector Laboratory was established this year under director Sung Keun Park of Korea University, Seoul.
The new generation of big proton–proton colliders now being planned in Europe and the US aims to open up the collision physics of the constituent quarks and gluons hidden deep inside the proton. Loc...
Every year sees the emergence of new breeds of detectors and the improvement of existing ones, but the innovations which go on to make a significant impact on physics research are limited. The large i...
Our previous issue carried the first of a series of articles (DELPHI, page 27) on the four major experiments for CERN’s 9 kilometre diameter LEP electron–positron ring, now under construction an...
The famous Gargamelle bubble chamber, featured in the May 1968 issue, went on to gather the first direct evidence of the weak neutral current.
In the May 1966 issue, A J Herz and W O Lock described the development of nuclear-emulsion detectors, highlighting a CERN experiment that determined the magnetic moment of the Λ0 baryon.
