 The NOMAD Experiment at CERN / Vannucci, F (Paris U., VI-VII) The purpose of this paper is to review the experimental apparatus and some physics results fromthe NOMAD(neutrino oscillation magnetic detector) experiment which took data in the CERN wide-band neutrino beam from 1995 to 1998. It collected and reconstructed more than one million charged current(CC)$\nu_\mu$ events with an accuracy which was previously obtained only with bubble chambers. [...] 2014 - Published in : Adv.

 Nuclear structure effects in the exotic decay of $^{225}$Ac via $^{14}$C emission / Bonetti, R (Milan U. ; INFN, Milan) ; Chiesa, C (Milan U. ; INFN, Milan) ; Guglielmetti, A (Milan U. ; INFN, Milan) ; Matheoud, R (Milan U. ; INFN, Milan) ; Migliorino, C (Milan U. ; INFN, Milan) ; Pasinetti, A L (Milan U. ; CERN) ; Ravn, H L (CERN) By using a 225Ac source produced at the electromagnetic separator Isolde we collected on our track-recording glass detectors 305 14C events from the radioactive decays of 225Ac and its daughter 221Fr and obtained, for 225Ac, a branching ratio B(14C/alpha)=(6.0 +/- 1.3) x 10^{-12}. Our result suggests that such a decay from an odd proton nucleus is dominated by transition to the ground or to the first excited state of daughter nucleus.. 1993 - 9 p. - Published in : Nucl. Phys.

 John Adams and CERN: Personal Recollections / Brianti, Giorgio (CERN (formerly)) ; Plane, D E (CERN) By any standards, John Adams had a most remarkable career. He was involved in three important, emerging technologies, radar, particle accelerators and controlled fusion, and had an outstanding impact on the last two. [...] 2013 - Published in : Rev. Accl.

 Superconducting Hadron Linacs / Ostroumov, Peter (Argonne) ; Gerigk, Frank (CERN) This article discusses the main building blocks of a superconducting (SC) linac, the choice of SC resonators, their frequencies, accelerating gradients and apertures, focusing structures, practical aspects of cryomodule design, and concepts to minimize the heat load into the cryogenic system. It starts with an overview of design concepts for all types of hadron linacs differentiated by duty cycle (pulsed or continuous wave) or by the type of ion species (protons, H-, and ions) being accelerated.

 Performance of Particle Flow Calorimetry at CLIC / Marshall, J.S. (UCAM) ; Munnich, A. (CERN) ; Thomson, M.A. (UCAM) The particle flow approach to calorimetry can provide unprecedented jet energy resolution at a future high energy collider, such as the International Linear Collider (ILC). However, the use of particle flow calorimetry at the proposed multi-TeV Compact Linear Collider (CLIC) poses a number of significant new challenges.

 Twenty Years of Searching for the Higgs Boson: Exclusion at LEP, Discovery at LHC / Horváth, Dezső (Wigner RCP, Budapest) The 40 years old Standard Model, the theory of particle physics, seems to describe all experimental data very well. All of its elementary particles were identified and studied apart from the Higgs boson until 2012 [...] arXiv:1402.6103.- 2014 - Published in : Mod. Phys. Lett.

 The results from LHCf and future prospects / Itow, Yoshitaka (Nagoya U., Solar-Terrestrial Environ. Lab. ; KMI, Nagoya) /for the LHCf Collaboration Precise understanding of hadronic interactions at very high energy is essentially important for observations of ultra high energy cosmic rays by extensive air showers. The LHCf experiment provides new data for very forward particle productions produced by LHC 7 TeV and 0.9 TeV p-p collisions.
