Magnets and testing equipment, CERN Featured 28 Jan 2014 Print

Magnets and testing equipment, CERN

Magnets and testing equipment at the magnet testing facility at CERN, the European particle physics laboratory. CERN straddles the Swiss-French border near Geneva. These magnets and equipment are part of the SM-18 facility, used to test superconducting magnets and instruments at very low temperatures (down to 1.9 Kelvin) and high currents (up to 20 kiloamperes). The magnets are used in the particle accelerators such as the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). The LHC is a 27-kilometre-long underground ring used to accelerate beams of protons to high energies and study the particles produced when the beams collide. Photographed in August 2012

Tar spot on Acer pseudoplatanus leaves

Leaves of sycamore, Acer pseudoplatanus, infested with the tar spot fungus, Rhytisma acerinum, photographed in Norfolk UK in August. R. acerinum is sensitive to sulphur dioxide in the atmosphere, and is becoming more widespread even in cities. due to clean air legislation and the steep decline in the use of coal for domestic heating. In the late summer, as here, the fungus appears as melanised lesions with shiny raised spots resembling tar, surrounded by yellowing areas of leaf tissue. The presence of the fungus is not fatal to the leaf, though heavy infestations may cause premature leaf fall. The fungus overwinters on the fallen leaves. In the following Spring, the tar spots split open to reveal a green apothecium, a saucer shaped ascocarp bearing asci on its surface. These spores are carried on the wind to young leaves, where the infection begins again
