LHC Report: superconducting circuit powering tests
Dernières nouvelles du LHC : les essais de mise sous tension des circuits supraconducteurs ont commencé
/ Mirko Pojer ; Matteo Solfaroli
After the long maintenance and consolidation campaign carried out during LS1, the machine is getting ready to start operation with beam at 6.5 TeV… the physics community can’t wait! Prior to this, all hardware and software systems have to be tested to assess their correct and safe operation.   Most of the cold circuits (those with high current/stored energy) possess a sophisticated magnet protection system that is crucial to detect a transition of the coil from the superconducting to the normal state (a quench) and safely extract the energy stored in the circuits (about 1 GJ per dipole circuit at nominal current).LHC operation relies on 1232 superconducting dipoles with a field of up to 8.33 T operating in superfluid helium at 1.9 K, along with more than 500 superconducting quadrupoles operating at 4.2 or 1.9 K.

Preserving CERN's legacy
Des trésors méconnus
/ Antonella Del Rosso
At CERN, scientists from all over the world design and build innovative instruments to be implemented in the cutting-edge machines used in high-energy physics. Those instruments go on to become part of the world’s most powerful accelerators, Nobel-prize-winning detectors, unique antimatter machines, the first web servers… These are historical pieces and belong to our common heritage.

Everything is illuminated
C’est lumineux !
/ Katarina Anthony
On Monday, 26 January, CMS installed one of the final pieces in its complex puzzle: the new Pixel Luminosity Telescope. This latest addition will augment the experiment's luminosity measurements, recording the bunch-by-bunch luminosity at the CMS collision point and delivering high-precision measurements of the integrated luminosity. [...]

Computer Security: Well fought, FP!
Sécurité Informatique : Bien riposté, FP !
/ Stefan Lueders, Computer Security Team
We are used to spam and phishing emails. But at the end of last year, a very special email struck one of our colleagues in the FP Department. [...]

Scientific remedies: it’s time to up the dose
La science pour remède : il est temps d’augmenter la dose
/
Last week, I spent some time attending the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum in Davos. As Director-General of CERN, I have a standing invitation and it’s one that I have regularly taken up [...]

EU Commissioner for Research, Science and Innovation visits CERN
Le Commissaire européen à la Recherche, la Science et l’Innovation en visite au CERN
/ Svetlomir Stavrev
The EU Commissioner for Research, Science and Innovation, Carlos Moedas, visited CERN on 30 January 2015. He was invited by the Director-General to obtain a first-hand impression of some of the world's largest and most complex scientific instruments, just before the eagerly awaited restart of the LHC at record energies. [...]

The art of sourcing talent (not only in physics)
L’art de rechercher des talents (pas seulement en physique)
/ Rosaria Marraffino
CERN is constantly seeking new talent, but this is not always an easy task, especially in some key areas. Although CERN is known worldwide for hiring physicists, they only account for a very small percentage of CERN’s annual recruitment. [...]

Ombud's corner: About letting go…
Le coin de l’Ombud : Aller de l’avant
/ Sudeshna Datta-Cockerill
New year, old problems? The best way to start 2015 is by not carrying over any frustration from 2014. Instead, let it go and move forward. [...]

A flying start for CERN in H2020
Programme Horizon 2020 : un départ en flèche pour le CERN
/ EU Projects Office
Following successful participation in a string of some 90 projects within FP7, CERN is also actively involved in Horizon 2020. In 2014, nearly 60 proposals involving CERN’s participation were submitted to various H2020 sub-programmes and the hope is that many more will follow in 2015. [...]
