HST2012, CERN - Day 10

Today we had the first lecture about Accelerators by Simone Gilardoni.
He explained why we need accelerators and how it works. Especially the function of the quadrupoles and dipoles, that confine the beam and gives the correct vibration. 

At launch we meet a Nobel Prize Physicist Carlo Rubbia. The Nobel Prize was for the work leading to the discovery of the W and Z particles at CERN

At launch also talked with Greg and Dave from Perimeter Institute.
These guys are rock, they know how to teach Modern Physics in a new way. Follow them at twitter.
Also Greg is a good soccer player.

After lunch we had the first lecture about Medical Applications from Physics by Manjit Dosanjh.
She talked about accelerators, detectors and how it changes our medical care: accelerators for tumor target and detectors for medical imaging.
