Particle Accelerator

Particle accelerator

  • A machine that uses electromagnetic fields to propel charged particles to nearly light speed and to contain them in well-defined beams

Collider research

  • Collider in which superconducting magnets are used to accelerate particles to energies of millions of megavolts

  • They travel on tracks underground some such as the LHC (large hadron collider) as large as 17 miles in a loop
  • Once particles reach a high speed they are the slammed into another particle
  • The LHC hurls beams of protons and ions at a velocity approaching the speed of light
  • This will cause the beams to collide with each other, and then record they resulting events caused by the collision
  • Scientists hope that these events will tell us more about how the universe began and what it’s made of
