The 1989 Computing In High Energy Physics conference weighed up the challenges of analysing LEP and other data.
The giant 1.5 T superconducting solenoid for the ALEPH experiment at LEP demanded special tooling for winding, impregnation, fitting and transport, as the July 1987 issue reported.
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...
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.
