Diamonds for CERN

    Press/Media: Research


    The European Center for Nuclear Research (CERN) delivered a diamond sample to Tomsk Polytechnic University. This diamond serves the basis for detectors that capture collisions of elementary particles at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). According to scientists, these diamonds are unique and created specifically for CERN in single copies. Until January, TPU scientists will study the sample for its further modernization. Then a new diamond detector will be sent to CERN for one year operation. If study results are successful, then it will be possible to improve the performance of other diamond detectors at CERN.
