Cryogenic sensors are used worldwide in a number of particle accelerators, including the world’s most powerful one, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN, where sensors are used to monitor the temperature of the superconducting magnets used to steer and focus the particle beam. 316 more words
A train-like robot has recently started patrolling the 27-km-long underground tunnel housing the world’s biggest particle accelerator.
TIM the robot travels on tracks fastened to the tunnel’s ceiling and checks important parameters of the Large Hadron Collider, which allows scientists to observe the collision of particle beams traveling almost as fast as light. 16 more words
After nearly two decades, the University of Chicago has welcomed the return of a cyclotron research facility, which will be open for use in January 2017. 844 more words
In large-scale high-energy physics applications, cryogenic monitoring electronics have traditionally been placed close to the temperature sensors, mainly because of the very small signals used to reduce the effect of self-heating in the measurements. 145 more words
