The Department of Physics at Royal Holloway University of London presents:

Dr Laurie Nevay (Centre for Particle Physics at Royal Holloway) – How to build a Particle Accelerator

Particle accelerators such as the LHC at CERN are often in the headlines for the cutting edge physics discoveries they produce. However, the physical task of building and running these machines is a great achievement in itself.

In this lecture, Dr Nevay will give an insight into how these marvellous machines work, how you would go about building one and how to stop your multi-billion pound accelerator exploding!
