Restart of the 13 TeV data tacking at LHC

After the usual winter break, the LHC was restarted in the spring. Number of adjustments of the beam and the experiments have been done with low intensity beam. Now the accelerator is ready to deliver protons to physics. For the second consecutive year, the LHC will run at a collision energy of 13 TeV.

The first IPNL accelerator at the university library

The IPNL was built around a Cockcroft and Walton accelerator bought by Jean Thibaud. This accelerator ended his life in the dome where only part of the original machine was used. It is the subject of a restoration project that is exposed to the university library between May 31 and July 2.

First Results of the EDELWEISS III experiment

First Results of the EDELWEISS III experiment

The EDELWEISS experiment aims to detect WIMPs, a candidate for dark matter particles. It is located in the Modane Underground Laboratory. The experiment operates bolometers cooled to tens of Millikelvin where a WIMP might collide with a germanium nucleus and produce its recoil. This recoil is then measured by the resulting temperature rise (few microkelvin) and ionisation production (Germanium is a semiconductor material). This double measurment allow to identify nuclear recoils and thus eliminating much of the background due to gamma rays from natural radioactivity.

New telescopes installation on the Soufrière volcano

The DIAPHANE project (IPNL / Geosciences Rennes / IPGP / ANR diaphane 2014-2018) had an important phase of installation on the Soufriere Guadeloupe in April-May 2015, which came after several months of preparation, construction, tests and calibrations of the muon detectors sent to the volcano. This has been performed with the support and expertise of the technical services of the IPNL.
