Superconducting magnet technology has fuelled some of the greatest discoveries in high-energy physics and is at the core of existing and next-generation circular particle accelerators, writes Luca Bot...
In the autumn of 1989 the Large Electron Positron collider (LEP) delivered the first of several results that still dominate the landscape of particle physics today.
LEP was the highest energy e+e– collider ever built, with levels of precision that remain unsurpassed in accelerator physics. Former CERN director of accelerators Steve Myers tells LEP’s story fro...
John Osborne, Alexandra Tudora and Ben Swatton survey the geological, environmental and technical constraints of a post-LHC collider.
André Martin witnessed some of the key moments in Gell-Mann’s scientific life, and became a close friend along the way.
Stephen Wolfram reflects on Gell-Mann’s complex character and his rivalry with Richard Feynman.
Tales of colliders contained in 60 illustrious years of CERN Courier offer a rich perspective on the strategic decisions facing the field today.
Harald Fritzsch, who collaborated with Gell-Mann in the early 1970s, describes the steps that led to a full understanding of strong interactions.
