Particle accelerators are some of the most advanced machines on the planet. They incorporate an impressive range of cutting-edge technology to do what seems like a simple job to give subatomic particles energy. So what would happen if we tried to use them in unexpected ways?
With the help of demonstrations, accelerator physicist Dr.Suzie Sheehy will discuss her top five things you should never do with a particle accelerator and a few things you definitely should.
Suzie is an accelerator physicist whose research focuses on developing
new particle accelerators for future applications in areas such as medicine and energy. She is passionate about communicating science to the public, for which she has been recognised with awards for her lecturing and outreach activities, including the University of Oxford Vice Chancellors Civic Award and the British Science Festival Lord Kelvin Award in 2010.
