Success Story

Application Domains

In October 2018, the SPS North Area (H2 line) supported several scientific beam tests, led by the University of Geneva, on the Fiber Tracker (FIT), a key part of the High Energy cosmic-Radiation Detection (HERD) – an experiment focused on indirect dark matter search, cosmic ray physics and gamma-ray astronomy for China’s future space station.
