Earlier this summer, evacuation exercises took place for the first time in LHCb and ATLAS as part of CERN's continuous effort to improve even more the safety standards. 

Discussing with Maria Borge and Yacine Kadi

Meeting the challenges of the High-Energy ISOLDE!

by Panos Charitos

Maria Borge (ISOLDE's spokesperson) and Yacine Kadi (project leader of the HIE-ISOLDE) discuss the importance of reaching a higher energy regime with the HIE-ISOLDE and the technical challenges of this project

Searching for rare kaon decays

The RICH detector of the NA62 experiment

The NA62 experiment is focusing on precision tests of the Standard Model by studying the rare decays of charged kaons. RICH will be used to identify daughter pions from muons and electrons in an efficient and non-destructive way.
