New Discovery Could Enable Portable Particle Accelerators

Conventional particle accelerators are typically gigantic machines that occupy a lot of space. Even at more modest energies, such as that used for cancer therapy and medical imaging, accelerators need large rooms to accommodate the required hardware, power supplies and radiation shielding. But a new discovery by physicists at the University of Maryland could hold […]
