The Large Hadron Collider, run by CERN of Geneva, is planning a slow start this fall. Scientists in charge of the project have decided to run the machine at 3.5 TeV per beam initially, as they hope to prevent a repeat of last year’s incident. They hope that the device eventually will run at the 7 TeV it was designed for.
- The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
