Bharat Electronics Ltd (BEL) contributed to the Big Bang experiment carried out by the European Organisation for Nuclear Research (CERN) recently. One of India’s leading Defense Public Sector Undertakings (DPSU), BEL supplied 32-channel silicon strip sensors to the Large Hadron Collider to detect subatomic particles generated after high-energy particle beams collided. “The BEL-made detectors were placed near the point of collision so as to capture the properties of these particles, thus giving an insight into the aftermath of the Big Bang explosion,” I.V. Sarma, BEL’s director of research & development, told Aviation Week.
