Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

An apparatus for increasing the kinetic energies of charged particles. Particle accelerators are used extensively in both nuclear physics, to investigate nuclear reactions, and particle physics, to search for new particles. These are two types: linear accelerators and cyclic accelerators. See cyclotron; linear accelerator; synchrocyclotron; synchrotron.
