High-precision vertexing: from concept to reality

| 25 November 2015 They're all individuals: detectors for particle physics all look very different. However, some of the technologies they (plan to) use can be the same, as this example from Belle II hows: it uses a component originally designed for an ILC detector. An example of technology transfer from the future... Category: Around the World | Tagged: , , , ,

Back in the beam

| 17 September 2015 Calorimeter prototypes have been taking showers at CERN – particle showers, that is. Detector developers have just packed up their equipment after finishing a campaign to understand the time structure of hadron showers. And they are happy with what they achieved. Find out how a beer chiller played a role in the test beam as well… Category: Around the World | Tagged: , , , , , , , , ,

Here’s one we made earlier

| 17 September 2015 Particle detectors need to be at the forefront of technology in order to capture particle collisions in great detail and quick succession. R&D projects for upgrades of existing detectors or future ones are busy around the world, and sometimes the technologies developed and studied in these projects can help out in others. LC NewsLine has two examples. Category: Feature | Tagged: , , , , , , , , , , ,
