Join us at 16:15 in the Dennis Sciama lecture theatre at the university of Oxford for a lecture by Dr. Alexander Gerbershagen from CERN.

CERN’s accelerator complex offers a great variety of multi-purpose test-beam and irradiation facilities. These facilities are used for a large variety of purposes, including the testing of the detector prototypes for LHC, FCC, CLIC and neutrino research, the calibration of these detectors, testing of radiation hardness of materials and electronics (among others, for space exploration), but also climate research, medical applications and outreach.
