Cern Large Hadron Collider Uses Ceramic Vacuum Chamber

In the largest scientific experiment ever undertaken, protons fed into the LHC through Kyocera’s ceramic vacuum chambers quickly reach speeds of up to 299,792 km per second — just below the speed of light — in the world’s largest particle accelerator. The chambers are made of fine ceramics because metal would produce a time lag …
