Large Electron-Positron (LEP) Collider Accelerating Cavity
Before the LHC, CERN scientists used this apparatus to conduct particle physics experiments.
This apparatus was used by J J Thomson during the discovery of electrons in 1897.
Come and take a seat! The meeting is about to begin. We have finally found the Higgs boson!
Large Hadron Collider (LHC) Accelerating Cavity
It generates a 2-million-volt electric field and increases the energy of the passing protons.
This quadrupole magnet is used for squeezing the beams, making them narrower and more condensed, thus increasing the collision rate.
The Collision Theatre
Get inside the detectors, watch the magnificent sight during a collision and see how the data flow through the Earth afterwards.
Vertex Locator (VELO) Modules
Don’t look down on this small detector module. During a collision, the distance between the collision point and this module is a mere 7mm!
Silicon Tracker Petal
This module is able to withstand the intense particle collisions and track the path of the particles.
Office in CERN
This is the office of CERN. Please be careful and don’t mix up any of the equipment!
