3D printing for research and outreach

CP3 recently acquired a MakerBot Replicator 2, a 3D printer capable of building plastic objects up to 15x15x25cm with a precision of 0.1mm. 3D printing is more and more used in experimental physics, and was already used at the CRC earlier this year. Now we will be able to prototype and design new pieces ourself, for outreach and research. Read more...

The Physics Department at UCLouvain has been involved for a number of decades in high energy particle physics research, equally strongly on the experimental and instrumental fronts as on the theoretical one. In spite of being located in physically distinct places, all these activities are now brought together within a common organisational structure, the Centre for Cosmology, Particle Physics and Phenomenology (CP3). This structure reinforces the collaboration of these varied components and competences in the physics of the fundamental interactions and the elementary particles.
