PACMAN swallows Metrolab


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 Accelerator 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.
