Taking a closer look at LHC

First of all we acknowledge the students, whom I always learn from and learn together with.

We would like to thank CERN very much for giving us the permissións to use informations, data, texts and images from CERN websites. The use on this Website of the various materials from publications produced by CERN is strictly in accordance with CERN's terms of use.

Very special thanks to Jorge Gabriel Morales Rey for his work as webmaster and for his very helpful comments, suggestions, improvements, and corrections to these web pages.

Also, thanks a lot to Ian Barry and Emily Amburgey for their help in the english translation of some parts of this website. All errors you find are only our own.

Also, we thank Mar Capeáns GarridoJosé Angel Hernando Morata, Hugo Ruiz and Marcos Mariño, CERN-related physicists, for dedicating time out of their busy schedule to help us.

Very special thanks to Maurizio Vretenar, Linac4 Project Leader, for introducing to us the Linac4. 

Thanks to Natalia Abelenda Lameiro for her very helpful comments and corrections to some of these web pages.

Finally, we would like to thank CERN for permission to participate in the High School Teachers Programme 2003. Thanks to this initiative, which began in 1998, hundreds of teachers have the opportunity to find out what CERN is and how the LHC has been built.

Special thanks are due to Mick StorrMichelangelo Mangano and Gron T. Jones for their kind assistance and great guidance.


HST 2003


As a result of HST Programme the teaching of particle physics is being promoted in high schools and this web is intended to contribute to this objective.
