What does CERN do?

 Fundamental research at
    the highest energy



          CERN HST 2001
They use different
accelerators




              CERN HST 2001
    LEP
The large
Electron
Positron collider
is in a circular
tunnel 27 km
round and 100
m underground


              CERN HST 2001
          APPLICATIONS
These are some of the applications of
technologies developed at CERN for particle
physics research
1.- World-Wide Web invented at CERN (www.cern.ch)
2.- Contribution to developments in technologies such as
superconductivity, cryogenics, vacuum…
3.- Cancer therapy, medical and industrial imaging,
radiation processing, electronics, measuring instruments,
new manufacturing processes and materials, food
preservation techniques, destruction of toxic products,

LHC (Large Hadron Collider)
• Beams of protons-
  protons will collide
  at an energy of 14
  TeV
• LHC will replace
  the LEP (beams of
  electrons-positrons
  at an energy less
  than 200 GeV
 ( 1 TeV = 103 GeV)

DETECTORS




  CERN HST 2001
WILL IT BE POSSIBLE TO
 PROCESS THE HUGE
  AMOUNT OF DATA?



         CERN HST 2001
The GRID: a new computing infrastructure




                CERN HST 2001
Thank you !
