Exhibition showcasing results of three years of arts and science collaborations

Geneva, 16 October 2018. What happens when scientists and artists collide? Artworks resulting from three years of collaboration between physicists and Collide International artists-in-residence at CERN, the world’s largest particle physics laboratory, will be exhibited at Broken Symmetries in FACT Liverpool, UK, from 22 November 2018 to 3 March 2019.

CERN opens its doors for Researchers’ Night

On Friday, 28 September 2018, budding scientists, beginners and fans of all ages will come together for Researchers’ Night at CERN, a free and fun bilingual event.

For this great European celebration of science, the world’s biggest particle physics laboratory have opened its doors to the public each September for nine years. An excellent opportunity to share amazing scientific innovations and put on quite a show! Come and discover the background of CERN through documentaries, animations, workshops, guided tours and nocturnal exhibitions.

World’s first crabbing of a proton beam

CERN has successfully tested “crab cavities” to rotate a beam of protons – a world first. The test took place on 23 May using a beam from CERN’s Super Proton Synchrotron (SPS) accelerator and showed that bunches of protons could be tilted using these superconducting transverse radiofrequency cavities. These cavities are a key component of the High-Luminosity Large Hadron Collider (HL-LHC), the future upgrade of the LHC.

A new era of precision for antimatter research

 

The ALPHA collaboration has reported the most precise direct measurement of antimatter ever made, revealing the spectral structure of the antihydrogen atom in unprecedented colour. The result, published today in Nature, is the culmination of three decades of research and development at CERN, and opens a completely new era of high-precision tests between matter and antimatter.
