So, I always forget this sort of thing. Last year, someone texted me the web address of this record. I don’t know what it means. Probably something about science. Errrr…it appears to be nuclear science? Check out some of the articles these guys have written, their names are conveniently hyperlinked to records they’ve contributed to.


There are some very smart people in the world. Unfortunately, it seems they are not smart enough to realize that taking apart our smallest particles and smashing them together might not be such a good idea.

Abstract The development and tests of a Phi monitoring system prototype designed for the
CMS Muon Spectrometer alignment are described. The system, using a sweeping laser beam,
defines a light reference plane to be used for the continuous monitoring of the Muon detectors.
The performance of the system in the Laboratory was satisfactory. It showed good stability
and linearity response behaviour.
With the appropriate selection of components it can monitor large range position shifts ( up to 1-2 cm)
with good accuracy at long distances
( ~ 60 mu accuracy at 10 m).

Because this is my weblog and I can say whatever I want…I only hope you are happy.

Remember the letter I wrote, what it asked?

I wish you could talk to me about muons.


Is there really anything to say?
