High energy physics still has a lot to gain from microprocessor applications, wrote the Courier in 1979.
With construction of the Super Proton Synchrotron in full swing, the May 1975 issue of the Courier published a progress report on its vacuum and radio-frequency systems.
In November 1972, CERN’s Roger Calder described in detail the unprecedented vacuum system of the world’s first hadron collider, the Intersecting Storage Rings.
In March 1972 – the year Intel’s 8008 processor was launched and the compact disc invented – CERN’s Lew Kowarski explained why computers were here to stay.
This article from July 1969 looked into the future of very high voltage in vacuum.
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.
Computing resources may one day dictate the amount of experimental physics research done at CERN, predicted this June 1964 feature.
In the summer of 1960, the Courier compared and contrasted the 600 MeV Synchrocyclotron and the 28 GeV Proton Synchrotron
