Researchers build a particle accelerator that fits on a chip

For the first time, scientists have created a silicon chip that can accelerate electrons - albeit at a fraction of the velocity of the most massive accelerators - using an infrared laser to deliver, in less than a hair.

Mini antimatter accelerator could rival the the Large Hadron Collider

Researchers have found a way to accelerate antimatter in a 1000x smaller space than current accelerators, boosting the science of exotic particles.

Physicists build ultra-powerful accelerator magnet

  • 8 Apr 2016

The next generation of cutting-edge accelerator magnets is no longer just an idea. Recent tests revealed that the United States and CERN have successfully co-created a prototype superconducting accelerator magnet that is much more powerful than those currently inside the Large Hadron Collider.
