CERN Engineering News
— 5 km of technical galleries have been scanned and half of them 3D-modelled, and the work to renovate and replace their technical infrastructure is in full swing
— Before embarking on its journey, critical components of ESA’s interplanetary mission were tested in the only facility on Earth capable of replicating Jupiter’s harsh radiative environment
— SM18 is one of the largest magnet test facilities in the world. Dedicated to testing superconducting magnets and radiofrequency cavities, it is now waiting for the first HL-LHC components
— The first additive manufacturing of a critical accelerator component paves the way for more affordable and versatile particle accelerators.
— An LHC quadrupole whose beam screen had been coated with a fine layer of carbon displayed minimal heat load in comparison to other magnets, constituting a promising step in eliminating electron clouds in future particle accelerators
— From brick-building to online flow analyses, ideas abound for sustainable reuse of excavated material from a tunnel for a potential future CERN facility thanks to the “Mining the Future” competition held as part of the FCC Innovation Study.
