CERN congratulates LIGO on the news that they have detected gravitational waves for the first time, 100 years after these waves were predicted by Albert Einstein. The signal of gravitational waves was recorded by the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory (LIGO) in the US and analysed by an international group of scientists including CalTech, MIT, the LIGO Scientific Collaboration (and the GEO600 collaboration) and the Virgo collaboration in Europe.

With our experiment published already before with 5 years,everybody may detect the gravitational waves at home,they the wavelength of which: h=~1/(10²³×10⁴) [metre] wavelength into a province can be found.But us the today's media excommunicated from the physics!

From astronomy to biomedical sciences: music and sound are used as tools for scientific investigation.

Dr. Domenico Vicinanza will highlight the interconnections between music and biomedical science, in a journey through the many ways of listening to scientific data: from hearing the differences between stem cells, to identifying the right tune for physical rehab, to pure musical wonder.

The presentation will be followed by live demonstrations organised with Dr. Genevieve Williams, showing sonification in action.

Dr. Domenico Vicinanza is a scientist and a musician. He obtained his PhD degree in physics while working at CERN, and he is also a professional music composer and orchestrator. Dr. Vicinanza is Senior Lecturer at Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge, where he also leads the Sound And Game Engineering (SAGE) Research Group. He is also product manager for GÉANT, the pan-European network for research and education.

This event is taking place within the scope of ICTR-PHE: http://ictr-phe16.web.cern.ch/

Final shipment leaves CERN today for its journey to SESAME in Jordan

For close to three years, CERN, through the CESSAMag project, has coordinated the production of components for the pioneering SESAME research facility. This third-generation light source is the first intergovernmental research organization to be established in the Middle East.

With today’s shipment, the CESSAMag project concludes its undertaking to deliver magnets (17 dipoles, 66 quadrupoles and 66 sextupoles), along with power supplies and controllers to the new laboratory.

8 February 1988 : LEP tunnel completed

#ThrowbackThursday #TBT

The excavation of the 27-kilometre tunnel for the Large Electron-Positron (LEP) Collider was completed on 8 February 1988. LEP was commissioned in July 1989 and closed down on 2 November 2000 to make way for the construction of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in the same tunnel.

The photo shows a tunneling crew after completing a section of the tunnel between points 2 and 3 on the LEP ring.

Has the magic gone from Calcium-52?

New results from the COLLAPS experiment at ISOLDE indicate that nuclear physics theories don’t describe atomic nuclei as well as previously thought.

1973: An improvement programme for the Synchrocyclotron

#ThrowbackThursday #TBT

The Synchrocyclotron (SC) underwent a major reconstruction in 1973, called the SC Improvement Programme (SCIP). An important part of the upgrade of the SC was to change the frequency system from one based on a tuning fork to a rotary condenser, showed on the photo.

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.
