Young scientists at KEK

30 June 2011 Junior high school students in the Tsukuba area visited KEK for their school's job experience programme. Here they use a Kyoto camera to look for defects on the inside of an accelerating cavity. Category: Image of the week | Tagged: , ,

A robot to watch out for defects

| 14 April 2011 A small group of young researchers at DESY, Germany, is working on a robot that could drastically reduce the time it takes to optically inspect a cavity. Their work covers everything from the pure mechanics of the workbench and fine-tuned motors for moving the heavy parts to developing sophisticated methods of automatically analysing the pictures. Cavities might eventually pass the check in two hours instead of the one-and-a-half days it takes today. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , , , , ,
