Researcher at controls of CERN SPS ring


Rights Managed


Researcher at the computer controls of the Super Proton Synchrotron (SPS) ring at the CERN research centre, Geneva. The SPS is housed in a 6.3km long circular tunnel and took six years to build. In 1981 the SPS was modified to allow it to operate as a proton/antiproton collider ring, at collision energies up to 900 GeV (Giga electronvolts). This led to the discovery of the W and Z particles that carry the electroweak nuclear force in 1983 and the top quark in 1984.
