CCTVal researchers conducted collaborative visit to CERN.

The engineer Alam Toro and the physicists Ryan White and Edson Carquin, of the Scientific and Technological Centre of Valparaíso (CCTVAL), performed a work stay at the European laboratory CERN, for the Chilean participation in the renovation of the great ATLAS detector.

The engineer Alam Toro and the physicists Ryan White and Edson Carquin, of the Scientific and Technological Centre of Valparaíso (CCTVAL), performed a work stay at the European laboratory CERN, for the Chilean participation in the renovation of the great ATLAS detector.

George MikenbergAlam Toro is an engineer and researcher in charge of the laboratory of particle physics of the CCTVal of Santa María University, while Ryan White and Edson Carquin are physicists and members of the Chilean collaboration in the ATLAS experiment, the large Hadron Collider (LHC, by its acronym in English).

The purpose of the stay is to work on-site in the analysis of data collected in the experiment and participated in the improvement in the manufacture of new detectors components, called sTGC (Thin Gap Chambers), which are being built in Chile and that will be later installed in the large detector located in Switzerland. This is the first time that Chilean groups are involved in the construction of high technology components for this transcendental experiment in the physics of the subatomic world.

The task of making the sTGC is a commitment shared by groups of four countries: Canada, China, Chile and Israel. That is why our engineer Alam Toro, will accompany Dr. George Mikenberg, head of this renovation project of ATLAS, on a trip to China to visit one of the teams in charge of the developing the sTGC components similar to those made in theother countries, among them Chile.
