Rony Kuriakose at CERN

Rony Kuriakose (electronic engineer-Instrumentation Group) and Zinhle Buthelezi (researcher– iThemba-ALICE group), visited CERN, Geneva, Switzerland from 12-25 February. CERN is currently undergoing various upgrades within the ALICE (A Large Ion Collider Experiment) detector – one of numerous experiments on the LHC (Large Hadron Collider) ring. The opportunity to be involved in the electronics for the ALICE Muon Tracking Chambers (MCH), among other projects will be discussed in the Subatomic physics department.
