Getting ready for the holiday season? We sure are! Check out the photo board for some holiday spirit.
In this issue, you can learn how ESO and Cosylab shared a mission to build the right control system framework for ALMA, what Rok Hrovatin learned by hopping from one accelerator conference to another, and an in-depth article about the SwissFEL Event Timing System. On a lighter note, don't miss Robert Modic's article on what happens when you try to match kids' limitless minds with BIG science and BIG experiments. And, last but not least, we wish you a warm and cosy holiday season and wish you success in pushing science to its limits in 2019!

Latest Issue: Control Sheet no. 37, December 2018

  • 5 Takeaways from the Autumn Accelerator Conference Season
    Rok Hrovatin spent the time from August to October hopping from one accelerator conference to another. Read the insights he gained on the road.

  • SwissFEL Event Timing System
    PSI's SwissFEL is an X-ray free-electron laser, which will enable researchers to gain insights that are not possible with today's methods. Read the in-depth article about the Event Timing System for SwissFEL here.
  • Visit with a TWIST
    You know how kids are, BIG dreams, BIG ideas, limitless minds.
    We tried to match their imaginations with an inspiring talk about BIG science, BIG machines, BIG accelerators and BIG experiments.
    Read about it here.
  • How ESO and Cosylab shared a Mission
    ALMA is the world’s largest ground-based radio telescope for observations in the millimeter/submillimeter wavelength regime located in the Atacama Desert, at an altitude of 5000 m in northern Chile.
    As a large international collaboration, the ALMA telescope project envisioned a standardization of the control infrastructure to ensure a manageable integration of all subsystems. 

    Together with ESO, Cosylab played a valuable role in building the right control system framework. Read about it in the Case Study.
