CERN Accelerating science

Accelerators for Society is live now

Visit the recently launched website to learn more on applications of particle accelerators.

Exploring the accelerator frontiers

Discussing technologies and limits for future particle accelerators is key to defining a coherent long term strategy.

A novel technique for compact accelerators

Circular electron colliders are not feasible at TeV energies; hence future TeV accelerator designs are based on linear colliders.

Accelerator neutrinos are recovering their lead

On July 19th 2013, the international T2K collaboration proudly announced definitive observation of muon neutrino to electron neutrino transformation.

New developments in unconvetional RF structures

Focus on very high accelerating gradient RF structures, either for superconducting or normal conducting machines.

Demonstration of Rf drive system MICE achieved

Ionisation cooling is required to reduce the emittance of a muon beam rapidly for application in future accelerators for neutrino factories and muon colliders.

Irradiation facility for target testing

In TIARA Work Package 9, the team led by scientists and engineers from CERN are developing a compact irradiation device.
