In conjunction with the CERN openlab Open Day, you are welcome to join us for a quick tour of some of the visit points in the laboratory on September 22. After the tour, we will organise a quick lunch.
The SM18 facility at CERN is a world leading magnet test facility for testing magnets and instrumentation at low temperature (1.9 K up to 80 K) and up to high currents (20 kA).
The 600 MeV Synchrocyclotron (SC), built in 1957, was CERN’s first accelerator. It provided beams for CERN’s first experiments in particle and nuclear physics.
