After the long-shut down the SPS accelerator restarted in the beginning of October along with the NA62 experiment.
Maria Borge, ISOLDE's spokesperson, discusses the physics accomplishments of the first six weeks of beam time
The newly constructed second experimental area (EAR2) of the n_TOF facility received its first neutron beam on July 25 2014 after the LS1.
ELENA is a CERN project aiming to construct a small 30 m circumference synchrotron to further decelerate anti-protons from the Antiproton Decelerator (AD) from 5.3 MeV down to 100 keV.
The 1st workshop of the Search for Hidden Particles (SHiP) Collaboration kicked-off the preparation of a timely experiment on the SPS to explore hidden portals of the Standard Model (SM).
The mirrors for the NA62 RICH have been successfully coated in the Thin Film and Glass (TFG) lab and are now installed as the collaboration is preparing for the first physics run.
In a one-day workshop, ISOLDE collaboration discussed the technical studies and possible experiments that could take place in the new Test Storage Ring facility.
The PH-DT group recently completed the construction of the straw chambers for the NA62 tracking detector.
The AEgIS experiment (Antimatter Experiment: Gravity, Interferometry, Spectroscopy) at CERN is designed to examine the effects of gravity on antimatter.
CAST is searching for these particles with a telescope designed to detect axions from the Sun. It uses an unexpected hybrid of equipment from particle physics and astronomy.
