Strange quarks in the mirror

It was installed in Jlab laboratory, Virginia (USA) the first module of a detector, named RICH (Ring Imaging Cherenkov, that uses the highly directional light emission produced by the passage through transparent materials (radiators) of particles which – through that medium – propagate with a phase velocity higher than the one of light (Cherenkov effect). Here it started to operate on the electron accelerator with the highest energy, polarization and efficiency of the world.

A new technology for accelerators

LINACS (linear accelerators) are metallic structures powered by radio-frequency systems that allow to accelerate particle beams. They can be used in several fields of both research and industry such as injectors for light sources or colliders, free electron lasers-FELs, particle sources for experiments on fixed target, X-ray sources for radiotherapy or medical diagnostics, national security systems and material treatments.
