Radio-frequency (RF) cavities are the foundation of most modern particle accelerators. Come and play an interactive game in which you can fine-tune virtual RF cavities to keep a particle beam on track.
Did you know that you can detect a material without touching it by measuring its electrical properties? Get a live demonstration of how changes in electrical capacitance can be used to detect movements of your hand, to count sheets of paper and much more than this in the context of particle accelerators.
You're the engineer-in-charge of the LHC control room. Before your shift ends, you will have to accelerate the two particle beams, maintain their trajectories with powerful magnets, and make the beams collide. Will you successfully complete the LHC run? Maybe find new particles? Play this escape room to find out.
Discover the equipment that is used in the LHC tunnel to protect the LHC's electrical circuits in case of problems: electronic cards, large mechanical switches, diodes that can work in cryogenic conditions, power supplies, and more.
