Caption: Magnetic measurement at CERN. Resistive room-temperature quadrupole lens set on a measurement table to check magnetic field quality at CERN, the European particle physics laboratory. This equipment can measure variations in the magnetic field of less than 1 part in 10,000. Located on the Swiss-French border near Geneva, the particle accelerators at CERN are massive underground rings many kilometres across. Particles are accelerated and collided at high speeds, producing new particles that are examined with large detectors. Magnets are used to control, contain and direct the particle beams. Many of the key discoveries in particle physics have been made at CERN. Photographed in November 2014.
