High-intensity magnets for DAFNE

The new quadrupoles for the DAFNE collider interaction section are ready to be installed on the machine. These magnets will provide focusing the beams interacting in the vertical plane and are very important to enable e+e– colliders to reach high luminosities.

LHCb explores the secrets of antimatter

For the first time LHCb measured the difference between matter and antimatter in D0 mesons, particles composed of a charm quark and an up antiquark. The difference in the behaviour of matter and antimatter, known as CP violation, is one of the key processes to understand why the Universe
