New results presented by the +LHCb Experiment delve deeper into the mystery of matter-antimatter asymmetry.
One of the biggest challenges in physics is to understand why everything we see in our universe seems to be formed only of matter, whereas the Big Bang should have created equal amounts of matter and antimatter. CERN’s LHCb experiment is one of the best hopes for physicists looking to solve this longstanding mystery.

Did you guess it?

This photo shows a tomography machine developed at CERN by the AX-PET collaboration.

Positron Emission Tomography (PET) is a nuclear medicine imaging technique that produces a three-dimensional image of functional processes in the body. The PET development is an example of how detection techniques from High Energy Physics are contributing to the advancement of medical science.

After three years of successful operation and growth, CERN announced today the continuation of the global SCOAP3 Open Access initiative for at least three more years. SCOAP3, the Sponsoring Consortium for Open Access Publishing in Particle Physics, is an innovative partnership of over 3 000 libraries, funding agencies and research organisations from 44 countries.

1975: power supply for the Proton Synchrotron accelerator

#ThrowbackThursday #TBT

This photo shows a part of the high-voltage supply for the Proton Synchrotron (PS) pre-injector.

The PS was CERN’s first synchrotron and first accelerated protons on 24 November 1959, becoming for a brief period the world’s highest energy particle accelerator.

The PS is still one of the key component in CERN’s accelerator complex.

Read more about the PS: http://cern.ch/go/QG7R

29 September 1979: “Staff Day” to celebrate CERN’s 25th anniversary

#ThrowbackThursday #TBT

Official 25th anniversary celebrations were held on 25 June, but the fun and games happened on CERN’s real birthday, 29 September. As well as sports, sideshows, films, and Genevan Pipes and Drums, there was Happy Birthday, CERN, written and recorded by +Fermilab.
 
Verse three goes like this:
“Here's the toast we're proposing:    
May your future be greater,  
And the budget imposing for your next accelerator;    
May your staff be effective and your beams full of pep, 
May you gain your objective of constructing the LEP!”

The LHC is performing special runs at very low luminosity for the TOTEM & ATLAS/ALFA experiments. Find out why here: http://cern.ch/go/tml6 
Usually, the motto of the LHC is ‘maximum luminosity’ (in other words, as many collisions as possible). But this week, the LHC will ignore its motto, and perform special runs at very low luminosity for the TOTEM and ATLAS/ALFA experiments.

Yes, this photo shows a rather unusual cooking pot!

In the middle of the 70’s, to reduce the production costs of the disposable targets and ion-source units at ISOLDE, physicists suggested using a standard cooking pot as a vacuum chamber on the back of the target. With its good vacuum properties and low price, the object fitted perfectly with what was needed to run the experiment.

The cooking pot was replaced by a machined aluminium cover in 1992, when the ISOLDE facility was moved from the Synchrocyclotron to the Proton Synchrotron Booster.

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.
