Computer Security: Thirty years since "1984" - How close was Orwell to today’s interconnected world?
Sécurité informatique : « 1984 », 30 ans après - à quel point Orwell avait-il vu juste ?
/ Computer Security Team
This year marks the 30th anniversary of the time depicted in the novel 1984, written by the visionary George Orwell in 1947/8, as well as the 25th anniversary of the World Wide Web being invented at CERN. To mark this occasion, both the Cineglobe Film Festival at CERN and the Latitude Festival in the UK are holding panel discussions on the technological and socio-cultural implications of our infinite connectedness in an age of internet surveillance: “How close is our world to that of Orwell's nightmare?”   The novel 1984 describes the fate of its protagonist Winston Smith and his love interest Julia.

First beam in Linac4 DTL
Premier faisceau dans le DTL du Linac4
/ Katarina Anthony
Following the installation of the Linac4 Drift Tube Linac (DTL) earlier this summer (see here), the first DTL tank saw beams at 12 MeV on 5 August.   Transverse emittance measured at 12 MeV after the DTL tank1 using a temporary slit-and-grid emittance device [...]

Awakening the potential of plasma acceleration
AWAKE : un nouveau potentiel d’accélération grâce au plasma
/ Katarina Anthony
Civil engineering has begun for the new AWAKE experiment, which looks to push the boundaries of particle acceleration. This proof-of-principle experiment will harness the power of wakefields generated by proton beams in plasma cells, producing accelerator gradients hundreds of times higher than those used in current RF cavities [...]

LS1 Report: A highly choreographed ballet in the SPS
Dernières nouvelles du LS1 : Un ballet précisément chorégraphié dans le SPS
/ Katarina Anthony
With only one short month left until beam, the SPS teams have been kept busy with powering and operations tests. Alongside this demanding work, they have also successfully removed and replaced four key elements of the accelerator [...]

Safety on our roads
La sécurité sur nos routes
/
It’s almost the end of August, and many of us are returning to CERN after a well-earned rest.   For those with children, it’s time to prepare them for school – and those of us who drive often see signs to remind us that the schools are re-opening and that we should take care [...]

Ready to don a white coat?
Prêts à enfiler la blouse ?
/ Anaïs Schaeffer
What better way to learn than to try yourself? That’s the idea of S'Cool LAB, a new teaching laboratory: it offers school-children visiting CERN the chance to take part in a half-day practical workshop in a purpose-equipped lab.   S’Cool LAB’s first pupils testing the new laboratory [...]

An iron hand in a velvet glove
Une main de fer dans un gant de velours
/ Antonella Del Rosso
The various parts of the ATLAS detector were designed to be moveable, just like in a toy construction set, allowing access to the sub-detectors inside. However, unlike toy bricks, the components of this giant of physics weigh up to 1000 tonnes and need to be repositioned with a precision of as high as 300 microns. [...]

The first neutron beam hits EAR2
Le premier faisceau de neutrons frappe la cible de EAR2
/ Antonella Del Rosso
On 25 July 2014, about a year after construction work began, the Experimental Area 2 (EAR2) of CERN’s neutron facility n_TOF recorded its first beam. Unique in many aspects, EAR2 will start its rich programme of experimental physics this autumn [...]

ISOLDE à nouveau prise pour cible
/ Anaïs Schaeffer
Today, Friday 1 August, the ISOLDE installation, supplied by the beams of the PS Booster, restarted its physics programme. After a shutdown of almost a year and a half, there was a real buzz in the air as the first beam of protons hit the target of the first post-LS1 ISOLDE experiment. [...]
