RAL Particle Physics Masterclasses
17 - 19 March 2004
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.
1911- 1919Rutherford, Geiger and Marsden discovered the nucleus using particles (University of Manchester).
To be built at RAL. Start of operation = 2006.
Cost = £195M. Studies at molecular/atomic level.
