Third year John Adams PhD student Chetan Gohil has spent the last two years at CERN, working on a measurement campaign to characterise stray magnetic fields. Here Chetan explains why these measurements are so important:
Measuring 27 km in circumference, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is the largest and highest energy particle accelerator in the world. However, in the not too distant future the LHC could be dwarfed by a potential new accelerator, the Future Circular Collider (FCC). If built the FCC will be 100 km in circumference and will be able to collide two beams of protons to an energy over seven times higher than the LHC.
