World-class expertise in the design of technologies to accelerate, measure and control particle beams.

CERN's Know-How:

  • World’s largest group of accelerator physicists & engineers 
  • Decades of experience in the simulation, design & construction of accelerating structures
  • Development of bespoke hardware and software for acceleration, diagnostics & beam control

Facts & Figures:

  • 11,245: number of times per second that each proton goes around the LHC
  • 2,556: number of bunches per proton beam in the LHC
  • 10+ hrs: lifetime of a proton beam during stable operation of the LHC
  • 10+ billion: number of kilometres a proton beam will travel during stable operation of the LHC
