    The ATLAS detector is composed of several subdetectors, each one with its signal conditioning and digitizing system, that provide the necessary analog signal conditioning (i.e., amplification, filtering, etc.), analog-to-digital conversion, digital signal processing (i.e., data compression, digital filtering, etc.), and interface to the successive data acquisition system of the experiment.

    The Large Hadron Collider beauty (LHCb) experiment [1] at the LHC has been designed and built to search for signs of new physics phenomena beyond the Standard Model of particle physics in the decays of heavy particles made of beauty (b) and charm (c) quarks, created in proton-proton (pp) collisions at the LHC in Geneva, Switzerland. In particular, the LHCb is expected to study the reasons for whic... View full abstract»

    Channeling is the phenomenon constraining the path of a charged particle in a crystalline solid. High-energy charged particles can be captured in channeling states by the electromagnetic potential of the atomic planes in a crystal, thus performing quasi-harmonic oscillations between them. Particles channeled in a bent crystal are deflected by the bend angle. This provides a powerful method to stee... View full abstract»

    The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is the largest particle accelerator ever built. The transverse energy density of the nominal beam is 1000 times higher than what was previously achieved in proton storage rings. Tiny fractions of the stored beam suffice to quench a super-conducting LHC magnet (i.e., a situation where part of the magnet exits the superconducting state) or even to destroy parts of the...

    The task of a beam instrumentation physicist or engineer is to design, build, maintain and improve the diagnostic equipment used for the observation of the particle beams in today's particle accelerators. These systems are essential for the efficient operation of any type of accelerator, whether used for high energy physics, production of neutrons for materials science, production of intense X-ray...

    Superconductivity is a technology with a declared interest in several fields of physics and engineering. Nowadays, superconducting cables [1] are largely exploited in fields such as particle colliders [2] and medical machines [3]. The generation of electrical energy with tokamaks [4] is a further application of low-temperature superconductivity as well. Moreover, the promises arising from High Tem... View full abstract»

    The measurement of cryogenic temperatures is essential for operating large-scale cryogenic installations and in experimental set-ups used for understanding low temperature physics phenomena. Recommendations on how to select and operate temperature sensors can be found in [1]-[2]. This paper presents how the CERN's Large Hadron Collider (LHC) [3] requirements for measurement of cryogenic temperatur... View full abstract»

    In the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN, the powering of the main dipole and quadrupole circuits is divided into eight separate powering sub sectors due to the very high magnetic energy stored in these circuits and to protection constraints of the superconducting magnets [1]. As a consequence, individual sector currents must be controlled with very high accuracy in amplitude and time to ensure ... View full abstract»
