Particle Stream/Beams

  1. Mar 21, 2007 #1
    I know CRT Monitors work on an individual beam of electrons being beamed from one side of a tube to another. Is it possible to not only 'stream' electrons, but protons and neutrons as well?

    Particle accelerators around the world accelerate all kinds of particles -- everything from electrons and protons to positrons and even gold nuclei. Different phenomena can be explored with different kinds of collisions.
