Live CMS

CMS live from Facebook. The Pixel Tracker (or Pixel Detector) is the innermost instrument in the very heart of the CMS apparatus, installed around the LHC beampipe. This is the very point where new particles, such as the Higgs boson, are produced by the energy of the proton proton collisions, and so the Pixel detector receives the largest particle-flux of any sub-component of CMS. The new component is made up of two “parts”: a central...

This animation shows how the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) works.

The film begins with an aerial view of CERN near Geneva, with outlines of the accelerator complex, including the underground Large Hadron Collider (LHC), 27-km in circumference. The positions of the four largest LHC experiments, ALICE, ATLAS, CMS and LHCb are revealed before we see protons travelling around the LHC ring.

The proton source is a simple bottle of hydrogen gas. An electric field is...

Supraconducting cavities for LEP-2 project (2)

& Jean-Claude Vialis
CERN is in the process of producing, equipping and installing 224 superconducting (SC) cavities for the energy upgrade of the LEP collider. The project is known as LEP2.

Magstar and 3590 - High performance tape subsystems

The IBM 3590 High Performance Tape Subsystems featuring the revolutionary IBM Magstar Tape Drive, is an open multiplatform solution created with an eye to the future - meeting the increasing data storage demands of everyday business - with dramatic improvements in capacity, reliability, and performance over today's products. Interview with Less Robertson.

Greetings from CERN 2015-2016

& Daniel Dominguez
In 2015, the LHC began its second running period: Season 2. After two years of maintenance and upgrades, the LHC is now operating at the higher collision energy of 13 TeV, increasing its discovery potential.

Rubrica culturale "Rebus"

Atlas civil engineering

The first things lowered to the cavern were not parts of the new detector or parts for the accelerator rather than the machines digging the cavern bigger and lifts that transport stones and other excess material up to the surface.

This work was very demanding already.

Audition parlementaire du professeur Carlo Rubbia à présenter son projet de \"réacteur-accélérateur\" (1)

Paris Le Sénat
Le 21 novembre 1996, Carlo Rubbia est invité à présenter son projet à l'Office Parlementaire d’Evaluation des Choix Scientifiques et Technologiques. Pour Claude Birraux, Président de l"office Parlementaite et initiateur, ce type d’audition, en étant intégralement enregistrée (enregistrement vidéo intégral de huit heures réalisé par l’Office Parlementaire), et donnant lieu à un rapport, constitue "une contribution essentielle à la transparence". En rendant visible la "panoplie de choix" qui s’offre au législateur, l’audition du professeur Rubbia...

The LHC, the coldest place on Earth

, Noemi Caraban Gonzalez & Noemi Caraban Gonzalez
The large hadron collider (LHC) is the largest cryogenics system in the world and one of the coldest places on earth / / The LHC's main magnets operate at a temperature of 1.9k (-271.3 c) / / All lhc superconductor magnets have to be tested at cryogenic temperatures / / This is a new cryostat installed at the magnet test facility SM18) allowing the magnets to be tested at both low temperature and high current....
