Press release: Pioneering SESAME light source circulates first beam

Allan, Jordan, 12 January 2017. A beam circulated for the first time in the pioneering SESAME synchrotron at 18:12 (UTC+2) yesterday. Following the first single turn, the next steps will be to achieve multi-turns, store and then accelerate a beam. This is an important milestone on the way to research getting underway at the first light-source laboratory in the Middle East.

Press release: CERN experiment improves precision of antiproton mass measurement with new innovative cooling technique

Geneva, 3 November 2016. In a paper published today in the journal Science, the ASACUSA experiment at CERN reported new precision measurement of the mass of the antiproton relative to that of the electron. This result is based on spectroscopic measurements with about 2 billion antiprotonic helium atoms cooled to extremely cold temperatures of 1.5 to 1.7 degrees above absolute zero.
