LHC Report: out of the clouds (part II)
Dernières nouvelles du LHC : dissiper les nuages (épisode II)
/ Giovanni Rumolo for the LHC team
A large fraction of the LHC beam-time over the last two weeks has been devoted to the second phase of the scrubbing of the vacuum chambers. This was aimed at reducing the formation of electron clouds in the beam pipes, this time performed with 25-nanosecond spaced bunches. [...]

Computer Security: Android’s Armageddon
Sécurité informatique : le talon d’Achille d’Android ?
/ Stefan Lueders, Computer Security Team
“The mobile world’s equivalent to Heartbleed” and “Mother of all Android Vulnerabilities” - just two quotes from the media about the new vulnerability (see here) affecting all Android devices. While Google has been quick to fix this vulnerability, the big problem has been getting this fix to your Android devices: mobile phone manufacturers and providers are incredibly slow at passing it along…   What can you do to get this fix? Basically, there's nothing to do but wait. [...]

Put to the test
À rude épreuve
/ Katarina Anthony
This summer, the HiRadMat (High Radiation to Materials) facility began testing the first HL-LHC collimator jaw prototypes. How they perform when bombarded with high-energy, high-intensity beams will go on to shape the particle accelerators of the future.. [...]
