Hello! Long time reader, first time poster. First, I am sorry for my bad English, but I haven`t practiced from a very long time and this is not my native language. So, I am studing Physics. I and a classmate make DIY projects. We`ve made quite a big list of things - R/C models, tesla coils, Brown gas generator, CNC machine, etc... Of course we are not only interested in building something, but investigating the principles and the way it works. Recently we are thinkig of making a small (tabletop) particle accelerator. We have people who can help and a small (garage) workshop. Problem is, that I don`t know were to start. I`ve searched trought internet and mostly links aren`t working and information is small. I am looking on any ideas on that. I know CRT TVs and monitors are a kind of a accelerator. Please, don`t tell me that "it isn`t possible" Probably I should start with a Cloud chamber? http://www.instructables.com/id/DIY-Electron-Accelerator-A-Cathode-Ray-Tube-in-a-/ Sorry, for wrong sub-forym thread should be in General Physics.
