University of Nevada, Reno professor showcases 'mini' ion accelerator
...cle accelerators are a key research tool in a high energy
physicist's arsenal, but they take up a lot of space miles and miles of it. But at the University of Nevada, Reno, smaller is better. Cowan, director of the Nevada Terawatt Facility at the University, and his research partners have produced a proton...
