LHC Report: Start of intensity ramp-up before a short breather
Dernières nouvelles du LHC : début de la montée en intensité avant une courte pause
/ Mike Lamont for the LHC team
The first Stable Beams on 3 June were followed, to the accompaniment of thunderstorms, by the start of a phase known as the “intensity ramp-up” which saw the LHC team deliver physics with 50 bunches per beam. Time was also taken for a special five-day run devoted principally to the LHCf experiment. [...]

The miniature accelerator
L’accélérateur miniature
/ Antonella Del Rosso
The image that most people have of CERN is of its enormous accelerators and their capacity to accelerate particles to extremely high energies. But thanks to some cutting-edge studies on beam dynamics and radiofrequency technology, along with innovative construction techniques, teams at CERN have now created the first module of a brand-new accelerator, which will be just 2 metres long [...]
