Linac 4 completed

9 May 2017

Linac 4, the newest accelerator acquired since the LHC, is inaugurated at a ceremony. The linear accelerator will feed the CERN accelerator complex with particle beams of higher energy, which will allow the LHC to reach higher luminosity by 2021. It will replace Linac 2 during the long technical shut down in 2019-20.
