New, more powerful particle accelerator unveiled in Switzerland

A more powerful particle accelerator could open doors to many new discoveries. That’s what scientists are hoping the Linac 4 will achieve.

It can move ions three times faster than previous accelerators. It can create a particle beam two times as powerful as before.

Frederick Bordry, CERN’s director for Accelerators and Technology, talked about why the Linac 4 is different, “Definitely, when you have more events, you can have more discoveries. You know in physics, we need a lot of statistics, you need a lot of events to find new physics, then definitely, with more intensity, more, numerous protons, with better quality, it will be a source of discoveries for the future.”

Scientists are also hopeful it can lead to advanced methods of cancer treatment. They also want to use it to verify the authenticity of museum paintings.
