New Cooler with Two Million Volts

Electron cooler for COSY arrives from Novosibirsk

Jülich, 6 December 2012 – A new electron cooler for the Jülich particle accelerator COSY has arrived at Forschungszentrum Jülich after a 12-day journey by heavy truck from Novosibirsk nearly 6000 kilometres away. The two-megavolt cooling system developed in cooperation with the Budker Institute of Nuclear Physics will enable COSY to detect extremely rare high-energy decay processes of significance in the search for exotic forms of matter and effects outside the realms of the standard model of particle physics.
