JUAS at CERN 2019

On 11 January, the students of the JUAS 2019 course on “The physics of particle accelerators” were at CERN.

After a quick lunch at the CERN cafeteria, they first visited the LHC magnet test hall, where Marta Bajko of the Technical Department briefed them on the technical aspects of the collider; they could get a flavor of this huge machine in a full-scale mock-up of a section of the tunnel. They then proceeded to the CERN Control Centre where Reyes Alemany Fernandez of the Beams Department welcomed them and delivered a seminar on the CERN accelerator network and its operation. The group then visited the Control Center operations room where the picture below was taken.
