Did you guess it❓
This is one of the @ATLASexperiment’s new small wheels.
These wheels will be used to track particles called muons. Muons can be thought of as heavier cousins of electrons and pass through the inner parts of the detector with little disturbance.
The aim of this new detector piece is to improve ATLAS’s triggering capabilities so that the experiment can cope with higher muon rates expected from the High-Luminosity Large Hadron Collider.
1959 : John Adams in his office 📚⠀
#TBT #ThrowbackThursday ⠀
John Adams was appointed leader of the Proton Synchrotron (PS) Division. The PS Division was in charge of construction, commissioning and operation of the PS and of the targets and beam transport systems for the accelerator.⠀
In 1959, the PS accelerated protons for the first time, becoming the world’s highest-energy particle accelerator. ⠀
Today, the Proton Synchrotron (PS) is a key component in CERN’s accelerator complex. It accelerates either protons delivered by the Proton Synchrotron Booster or heavy ions from the Low Energy Ion Ring.
