In 2015 the Cern teamed up with seven other physics laboratories to welcome the biggest worldwide photo competition in physics: the Global Physics Photowalk. In the 200 applicants we were 20 lucky photographers to be part of Cern photowalk.
Big European bubble chamber
A stainless-steel vessel which was filled with 35 cubic metres of liquid hydrogen, D2 (molecular deuterium) or a hydrogen/neon mixture, whose sensitivity was regulated by means of a piston weighing 2 tonnes. During each expansion, charged particles left trails of bubbles as they passed through it (wikipedia).
The Linear accelerator 4 is designed to boost negative hydrogen ions to high energies. Scheduled to become the source of proton beams for the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).
A facility dedicated to the production of a large variety of radioactive ion beams for many different experiments in the fields of nuclear and atomic physics.
