Plasma Particle Accelerators Could Find New Physics


Scientific American July 2021

The next big collider will likely rely on novel technology

At the start of the 20th century scientists had little knowledge of the building blocks that form our physical world. By the end of the century they had discovered not just all the elements that are the basis of all observed matter but a slew of even more fundamental particles that make up our cosmos, our planet and ourselves. The tool responsible for this revolution was the particle accelerator.
