Stanford Researchers Miniaturize a Particle Accelerator to Fit on a Silicon Chip

by Stanford University, SciTechDaily

Stanford researchers build a particle accelerator that fits on a chip, miniaturizing a technology that can now find new applications in research and medicine.

Just as engineers once compressed some of the power of room-sized mainframes into desktop PCs, so too have Stanford researchers shown how to pack some of the punch delivered by today’s ginormous particle accelerators onto a tiny silicon chip.
