Particle Accelerator Record : New Particle Acceleration World Record Set By Researchers

Table-top particle accelerator sets world record, Using a small, inches-long device, researchers have accelerated subatomic particles to the highest energies ever recorded from a compact particle accelerator.

The team, from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Lab (Berkeley Lab), used a specialized petawatt laser and a charged-particle gas called plasma to get the particles up to speed. The setup is known as a laser-plasma accelerator, an emerging class of particle accelerators that...
