Particle Accelerator
Subject: Physics | Topics:

A particle accelerator is a machine that uses electromagnetic fields to propel charged particles to nearly light speed and contain them in well-defined cross-bow supports. There are two simple classes of accelerators: electrostatic along with oscillating field accelerators. Electrostatic accelerators utilize static electric fields to accelerate particles. A small-scale example with this class is the cathode ray tube within an ordinary old television set.
