by Fermilab

The experiment will send particles called muons—heavier cousins of the electron—around a 50-foot-wide muon storage ring that was relocated from Brookhaven National Laboratory in New York state in 2013

Improving Benchtop Particle Accelerators

by American Institute of Physics

Researchers propose a new way to improve the beam quality in laser wakefield accelerators, which are small and inexpensive enough to bring high energy physics experiments to a wide variety of universities and labs
