Accelerators and Nobel Laureates

This online article written by Sven Kullander at the Nobel e-Museum discusses the importance of particle accelerators to physics in a historical context. After studying their basic operatation, users can then learn about the many accelerator inventions and their assistance in various discoveries such as x-rays and electrons. The website provides links to descriptions of the many Nobel Prize...
CERN: Celebrating 60 years of science for peace

The European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN, as an acronym from the French), founded 60 years ago by Niels Bohr and other European visionaries, has revolutionized our understanding of the universe. With over 10,000 scientists from more than 100 countries working together to unravel the mysteries of dark matter, the early universe, and antimatter through the utilization of the world’s most...
NuMI Facility and the MINOS Experiment

Managed by the Universities Research Association, the NuMI (Neutrinos at the Main Injector) Facility and the MINOS (the Main Injector Neutrino Oscillation Search) experiment are part of the US Department of Energy's Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory. This site was created to illustrate the NuMI, which is being designed to produce a beam of neutrinos aimed at the Soudan Underground Mine State...
Principles of Charged Particle Acceleration

This learning resources comprise a healthy introduction to charged particle acceleration. The site, by Stanley Humphries, a professor of electrical and computer engineering at University of New Mexico, amounts to an online textbook (.pdf) introducing the theory of charged particle acceleration. The book's fifteen chapters (with bibliography) summarize "the principles underlying all particle...
SNS: Spallation Neutron Source

The Spallation Neutron Source (SNS) is an accelerator-based neutron source currently being built by the United States Department of Energy. Users can find out about upcoming workshops, conferences, and other events dealing with the accelerator, which is scheduled to be completed in 2006. By downloading a series of materials, users can learn about SNS's benefits and mechanisms. Researchers can...
The PS Complex as Proton Pre-injector for the LHC Design and Implementation Report

CERN has recently posted this new preprint. The publication is a report of the beam requirements, accelerator upgrades, and new RF harmonics and cavity design to be incorporated into the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), CERN's latest particle accelerator. The preprint can be downloaded in either .pdf or .ps format.
