Caption: CERN control room. Researchers working with the hodoscope detector at CERN in 1964. CERN is the European particle physics laboratory near Geneva, Switzerland. Until 1971, the main accelerator was the proton synchrotron, used to accelerate protons and other particles around a 200-metre-wide ring and into a target. The collisions create new particles, which are detected by devices like a hodoscope, which uses scintillation equipment. The results allowed physicists to understand the fundamental structure of matter. Many of the key discoveries in particle physics were made at CERN, which was founded in 1954.
