Creating particle collisions at nanometer scale and with picoseconds of duration requires extreme precision in spatial and temporal control. At facilities such as the European Organization for Nuclear Research, more commonly known as CERN, and the Australian Synchrotron, high-performance Agilent Acqiris digitizers are helping researchers achieve the levels of precision and control they need to perform more and better experiments in less time. Key attributes of the Agilent digitizers include high measurement throughput, very short “dead time” between acquisitions, excellent measurement fidelity, compact size and cost-effectiveness.
The remainder of this note describes the creation of high-energy particle beams, the control of particle beams inside CERN’s Large Hadron Collider (LHC), and the control of electron beams that produce high-intensity light in the Australian Synchrotron. It also explains how the digitizers are used in these experiments.
