The laboratory’s work extended into the area of higher energy Physics from Atomic nucleus study. Higher energy Physics is related to studying particle interaction. Thus, its lab is commonly known as ‘Laboratoire européen pour la physique des particules’ (European laboratory for particle physics).
Some notable discoveries are neutral currents, CP violation, W & Z bosons etc. Also, anti-hydrogen atoms were created here. W & Z bosons discovery paved way for Nobel Prize awards to ‘Simon van der Meer’ and ‘Carlo Rubbia’. The facilities that are open for public visits are 2005’s ‘Globe of Science & Innovation’ and ‘Microcosm museum’.
