Highlights from the session included UA9’s latest results from the HiRadMat facility, where they are examining the robustness of crystals against high-energy, high-intensity beams. The NA61/SHINE experiment outlined software upgrades, including the installation of a new drift velocity monitoring system. In addition, CAST discussed dark energy searches and OSQAR showcased plans for the 2014/2015 run.
This open session was also an opportunity for experimental projects seeking approval to explain their physics motivations and beam requirements.
These are just a few of the many non-LHC experiments looking forward to a productive future at CERN.
