Particle Accelerator used to Peek Inside Fossilized Poop

Scientists study every inch of an animal—from the tip of their nose right down to their, well, poop. And the same goes for ancient creatures. But until now, only a limited amount could be learned from from studying fossilized feces, also known as coprolites. 83 more words


The Synchrotron Facility is powered by solar energy. When the sun’s rays trigger the electrons in the solar panels, an electric current is generated. The electric current is then joined by two magnets. 20 more words

How Does a Voltage Multiplier Work?

If you need a high voltage, a voltage multiplier is one of the easiest ways to obtain it. A voltage multiplier is a specialized type of rectifier circuit that converts an AC voltage to a higher DC voltage. 889 more words


Supersymmetry. True? False? Does it matter?

A beautiful but unproved theory of particle physics is withering in the harsh light of data.

For decades, many particle physicists have devoted themselves to the beloved theory, known as supersymmetry. 307 more words

Cryogenic sensors for monitoring in superconducting RF cavities of linacs

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
