Toro and Schuster are being recognized for their contributions to the design of experiments that use particle accelerators to search for dark matter particles.
Knowing a magnet’s past will allow scientists to customize particle beams more precisely in the future. As accelerators stretch for higher levels of performance, understanding subtle effects, such as those introduced by magnetic history, is becoming more critical.
