Mi manca tanto il lavoro che ho eseguito nel 2005 sul magnete dell'antimateria. Alessandro.

This photo shows the MoEDAL (Monopole & Exotics Detector at the LHC) experiment, which searches for the magnetic monopole, a hypothetical particle with a magnetic charge.
 
On 10 August 2016, the MoEDAL experiment published its first paper on its search for magnetic monopoles, based on an analysis of data collected during the LHC’s first run.

CERN is featured in the 9th edition of the Global Innovation Index 2016 (GII 2016).

The theme of this report is “Winning with global innovation” and CERN is used as an example of an existing successful regional initiative.

This photo is of an insert used to help study superconducting Nb3Sn wire for the High Luminosity LHC project.
 
It measures the critical current of a superconductor in an external field. It is placed into a cryostat to transfer current from a region at room temperature, to the liquid helium environment. The four horizontal disks are thermal shields used to minimize heat radiation and instrumentation signals are sent using the wires.

July 1956: Detecting the #neutrino ? It’s possible!
 
#ThrowbackThursday #TBT
 
More than 25 years after the neutrino was tentatively predicted, a small team based at the Los Alamos National Laboratory in the US demonstrated for the first time that it was possible to detect neutrinos, setting in motion the new field of neutrino physics.
 
Today, the “supreme challenge” of creating and detecting neutrinos remains a worthwhile and exiting pursuit for the foreseeable future.

Happy Friday!

This week, the Large Hadron Collider's (LHC) performance surpassed expectations when it achieved 2220 proton bunches in each of its counter-rotating beams.
The Large Hadron Collider’s (LHC) performance continued to surpass expectations, when this week it achieved 2220 proton bunches in each of its counter-rotating beams – the most it will achieve this year.

+Aniello De Filippo No, never. It is just fear of what (often religious) people have no idea about. They forget that nature has been doing what CERN does with at least 20 MILLION times more energy ever since the universe was created. Nothing has opened up, black holes have not swallowed anything and Indian gods have not danced over Lake Geneva.

1973: experiment at the Intersecting Storage Ring
 
#ThrowbackThursday #TBT
 
The Intersecting Storage Ring (ISR) was the world’s first hadron collider. In January 1971, two beams of protons collided in the ISR for the first time. The collider ran until 1984.
 
The photo shows the R209 experiment (High Mass Muon Pairs and Associated Hadrons), installed in 1973 at the ISR intersection I2. This experiment was designed for muon-pair studies and associated hadrons.

1968: Start of CERN’s new telephone exchange

‪#‎ThrowbackThursday‬ ‪#‎TBT‬

This photo shows staff working inside the telephone exchange at CERN, brought into operation in August 1968. Its service was further improved in the spring of 1969, with the installation of the automatic international telephone service in Geneva.

Story
Tagline
Exploring the frontiers of knowledge
Introduction
CERN is a truly unique organisation. A genuine collaboration between countries, universities and scientists, driven not by profit margins, but by a commitment to create and share knowledge.

People here are part of immense scientific discoveries, answering some of life’s most complex questions and pushing the boundaries of understanding. Experts from every field come here to share in this ambition and the nature of this collaborative, international community creates a genuine atmosphere of trust. People are free to work creatively and to trust in, and rely on, their colleagues across the organisation.

History’s being made here – and the excitement is tangible, inspiring, overwhelming at times. It is the only place in the world that you can do this work in this way!

CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, is one of the world’s largest and most respected centres for scientific research. Its business is fundamental physics, finding out what the Universe is made of and how it works. At CERN, the world’s largest and most complex scientific instruments are used to study the basic constituents of matter, the fundamental particles. By studying what happens when these particles collide, physicists learn about the laws of Nature.

The instruments used at CERN are particle accelerators and detectors. Accelerators boost beams of particles to high energies before they are made to collide with each other or with stationary targets. Detectors observe and record the results of these collisions.

Founded in 1954, the CERN Laboratory sits astride the Franco–Swiss border near Geneva. It was one of Europe’s first joint ventures and now has 21 Member States.
