Cryogenic monitoring in Fermilab’s Muon g-2 application

We recently linked to this article in our social media: a look at how scientists at work on the Muon g-2 experiment at Fermilab have been “shimming” a large magnetic ring to create “a magnetic field so precise that even subatomic particles see it as perfectly smooth.” This 52-foot-wide superconducting particle storage ring will enable researchers to observe the precession of muons subjected to a magnetic field, basically so they can, with unprecedented precision, see how their experimental g-2 measurements compare to and deviate from the theoretical Standard Model g-2 prediction (as… 388 more words

The Woman Who Fell Into Time

A particle accelerator accident creates wandering spacetime distortions that allow random people to time travel.

“Why won’t you people tell me who you are?”

Maria Calvert, Ph.D in Applied Physics, manager of Superconductivity and Magnet Circuit Systems for the Machine Protection and Electrical integrity group for the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), had been isolated in a windowless interview room in the administration building at CERN (The European Organization for Nuclear Research near Geneva, Switzerland) for the past four hours.

VHS-Tape-Plasma Mirror Drives Tiny Particle Accelerator

When you think of a particle accelerator, you’re probably thinking of tens of kilometers of tube buried underground, at high vacuum, that uses precisely timed electromagnetic fields to push charged particles like electrons up to amazing speeds (and energies). 350 more words
