Caption: Magnetic measurement at CERN. Physicist Stephan Russenschuck, leader of the magnetic measurement section at CERN, the European particle physics laboratory. This section carries out prcision measurements on the magnetic fields used in the particle accelerators. 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.
