Everyone knows Pac-Man, that omnivorous yellow blob. But wait! The acronymologists at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) have come up with another interpretation: PACMAN now stands for “Particle Particle accelerators were developed by physicists to study the elementary nature of matter. Nowadays, they are usually immense, highly international... Components’ Metrology and Alignment to the Nanometre scale.” If you’re still reading, you’re ready for the video:
Metrolab is proud to participate in this forward-looking European Union project. We will have the pleasure of hosting Domenico Caiazza, from the University of Sannio, Benevento, Italy, who is developing a magnetic measurement system for small aperture magnets based on the vibrating-wire technique. Additional information on the PACMAN project can be found on the PACMAN web site and in the PACMAN brochure.
