Particle Physics and RAL

Rutherford High Energy Laboratory created in 1957 for research into particle physics.

UK accelerators - NIMROD proton synchrotron

 Closed in 1978 and revamped as ISIS pulsed

neutron source - visit today.

Today, RAL is a multi-disciplinary laboratory e.g. Space-Science, Lasers, DIAMOND..., employing

in total > 1000 people (  90 Particle Physic).

PPD now using international facilities - CERN (Geneva), DESY (Hamburg), SLAC (Stanford), FNAL (Chicago)

+ underground expts in Minnesota, Sudbury, Boulby…

 Talks today will cover some of the work in these centres + future projects.

Rutherford

1911- 1919Rutherford, Geiger and Marsden discovered the nucleus using  particles (University of Manchester).

diamond synchrotron
DIAMOND Synchrotron

To be built at RAL. Start of operation = 2006.

Cost = £195M. Studies at molecular/atomic level.
