Freshers lecture: Particle accelerators - application and discovery of physics

Speakers: Dr Andy Wolski, University of Liverpool

Aimed at undergraduates, though members may attend.
Over the past 100 years, particle accelerators have played a remarkable role in extending our understanding of nature. The next generation of accelerators holds further promise for uncovering fundamental phenomena, and for revealing processes that have profound practical implications.
However, the development of increasingly powerful and complex accelerators requires the solution of new, intriguing problems in physics and technology. We will explore how our understanding of physics is applied and sometimes extended in accelerators, which are then used for research in many diverse areas of science.
