New vacuum chambers are being developed for the ALICE and CMS experiments
A new technique developed at CERN will allow electron synchrotrons to operate at higher energies by reducing the diameter of the beam pipes
The new Building houses equipment for the surface treatment of vacuum equipment and the production of printed circuit boards

The LHC has been accelerating more and more protons, and to allow the machine to reach its maximum intensity, it will undergo a thorough scrubbing.
CERN’s Vacuum, Surfaces and Coatings group has contributed to the development of vacuum chambers for MAX IV, the new synchrotron in Sweden
On 17 January the Vacuums, Surfaces and Coatings (VSC) Group had exactly one hour to extract and fix a faulty 2-metre section of the LHC's vacuum
