ion_trap

Quadrupole ion traps can be used to trap electrically charged particles. At CERN, the GBAR experiment at the antimatter factory uses this particle trap to store anti-hydrogen-ions. Below you can find building instruction...

Dive into the fascinating world of bubble chambers and analyse tracks of high-energy particles with your students.

We have developed several activities for advanced high-school students, in which they study bubble chamber photographs and try to work out for themselves what they show. You...

Where do we live ? What are we made of ? Why are we here ? When did it all start and when is the end ? A key for possible answers to these vital questions of life may lie in a captivating connection of an infinitesimally small and an immensely big. Physicists are persistently banging on the door...

DIY cloud chamber material

Particles coming from the universe are crossing the earth all the time – they are harmless but invisible to us. Cloud Chambers are detectors which make the tracks of the particles visible. Some decades ago these detectors were used at CERN in the first particle physics experiments. The following...

This material was used for the 3rd annual CERN @Montreux Physics of Music / Music of Physics Workshop.  The workshops are held every year in the Petit Casino during the Montreux Jazz Festival.  These are from July, 2015.
