At the Physics Institute at the University of Bern, Armin Fehr and his colleagues have built the future 'Inner Tracker' of the ATLAS detector on a 1 to 1 scale. In the tube on the left, the proton-proton collisions take place. The dark red box shows one of the regions where the Optoboards will be located.

Every second fifty terabits of data

From 2026, the performance of the large-scale experiments at the European particle physics laboratory, CERN, in Geneva will be significantly increased. The preliminary work for the upgrade of the large particle accelerator LHC and the associated detectors is currently in full swing. An important contribution is made by the University of Bern, where doctoral student Armin Fehr (26) and his colleagues are working on a component for the ATLAS detector. This component will enable the read-out of the greatly increased data rates from 2026 onwards.

The Innovation Park “PARK INNOVAARE” in Villigen (AG) supports start-up companies in the field of accelerator technology.

CERN in Geneva is the leading particle physics laboratory worldwide. Large particle accelerators based on the most innovative technologies are used there for fundamental research. One year ago, the innovation park “PARK INNOVAARE” in Villigen (AG) launched, together with CERN, the BIC of CERN program: it supports start-ups and high-tech micro-companies using CERN technologies for commercial applications. These days the second call for proposals has started.

The LHCb collaboration at CERN has discovered a type of CP violation unobserved so far

The LHCb collaboration at CERN has seen, for the first time, the matter–antimatter asymmetry known as CP violation in a so-called D0 meson. LHCb is one of the four large experiments performed at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) with Swiss participation of Ecole polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) and University of Zurich.
