In large underground caverns in the Geneva region, particle physicists are uncovering the last secrets of our universe. There, the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) is operating the world’s largest particle accelerator – the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). Oerlikon Leybold Vacuum has a long-standing relationship with CERN, supplying the institute with state-of-the-art vacuum pumps as well as highly reliable leak detection systems.
