CERN Courier: latest issue
Updated: 1 hour 13 min ago
Advanced radio-frequency crab cavities are to be tested for the first time in a proton beam, a vital step towards the high-luminosity LHC upgrade.
Founded 50 years ago to meet research needs that no single university could provide, Canada’s premier accelerator laboratory continues to drive discoveries.

Technologies developed for the Compact Linear Collider promise smaller accelerators for applications outside high-energy physics.
Radical changes in computing and software are required to ensure the success of the LHC and other high-energy physics experiments into the 2020s, argues a new report.
