Building a Particle Accelerator

  1. Dec 5, 2003 #1
    Can anyone give me a link to or information about how to build a PRACTICAL particle accelerator? Like one that would fit inside a basement or garage? Please, no handhelds that cant do much, and no mile-long underground accelerators that require their own nuclear power plant. I am interested in knowing how they are built, and (possibly) to build one myself for research. Thank You

    are there any sites with clear, consie directions and plans, materials lists, etc. for dummies with little electric experience? those are more of a book on how PA's work, not thier actual construction

    No, not really. There are a few web pages by people who built their own particle accelerators, but they don't go into a lot of construction detail. It's not the sort of project that "dummies with little electric experience" tend to attempt.
