One Step Closer to the World’s Strongest Particle Accelerator

13. February 2020 News 0

A team of researchers called the Muon Ionization Cooling Experiment (MICE) collaboration had announced the success of completing a muon beam. In the past, particles made of protons, electrons, and ions have been accelerated in concentrated beams. This new particle called muons are particles much like electrons but with a larger mass, which gives them the ability to create beams with ten times more energy than the previous largest particle accelerator, the Hadron Collider. Muons can also be used in further research on the atomic structure of materials and can see through highly dense materials that X-Rays cannot penetrate. To learn more about muons and how they are produced and how the team MICE have been successful in the cooling methods for this new scientific breakthrough, read this article
