Continuing the research into the infinitely small, the CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, has installed a new layer of particle sensors right in the very heart of Atlas on 7th May. This is one of 4 detectors which equip the LHC, the most powerful particle accelerator in the world. No second chance! The challenge was to insert the IBL, a sub detector, closest to the beam pipe where particles collide. Scientists had only a few millimeters to put this instrument in place. Axon’ Cable took up the challenge and equipped the detector with miniature cable assemblies and connectors within a very severe environment.
