LHC dipoles

Geneva (Switzerland), 2007


The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is a particle accelerator located at CERN in Geneva, inside a tunnel 27 km long, spanning the border between Switzerland and France, which was formerly used to house the Large Electron - Positron Collider (LEP). The LHC is the largest and most powerful existing particle accelerator, aimed at investigating the matter properties on an increasingly fine scale. The magnets inside the accelerators are necessary to keep the particles on a circular orbit and the particle beam focused. The dipole magnets require high precision mechanical tolerances which needed years of research and development and the construction of a number of prototypes.
