New technology to power pocket-sized particle accelerator

Science
Aug. 9 (UPI) -- New particle acceleration technology promises to shrink the amount of space required to study exotic particles. "With this new accelerator method, we could drastically reduce the size and the cost of antimatter acceleration," physicist Aakash Sahai said in a news release. "What is now only possible by using large physics facilities at tens of million-dollar costs could soon be possible in ordinary physics labs." The world's most powerful particle accelerators are found in vast, underground facilities. They require more than a mile of space. Scientists at Imperial College London have developed a method for accelerating positrons to extreme speeds in a space 1,000-times smaller than the world's largest accelerators. "The technologies used in facilities like the Large Hadron...
