SM18 is one of the largest magnet test facilities in the world. Dedicated to testing superconducting magnets and radiofrequency cavities, it is now waiting for the first HL-LHC components
The first additive manufacturing of a critical accelerator component paves the way for more affordable and versatile particle accelerators.
An LHC quadrupole whose beam screen had been coated with a fine layer of carbon displayed minimal heat load in comparison to other magnets, constituting a promising step in eliminating electron clouds in future particle accelerators
From brick-building to online flow analyses, ideas abound for sustainable reuse of excavated material from a tunnel for a potential future CERN facility thanks to the “Mining the Future” competition held as part of the FCC Innovation Study.
A laser scanner acquired in 2020 by the EN department’s metrology laboratory produces high-resolution 3D modelling of a wide variety of components
The CERN-coordinated and EU-funded RADSAGA project is coming to an end after four years of rewarding research into radiation protection for electronics
The CERN CRANEbot successfully handled a vacuum module in the CMS cavern without the need for human intervention in a decisive test for the HL-LHC project
Lightweight, robust, complex parts produced using additive manufacturing (3D printing) are proving their worth in the accelerators
