Model of a particle accelerator
Some time ago I had to conduct a presentation about a special kind of particle accelerators.
In order to give a simple example I built a little model of a two staged particle accelerator
out of a old computer mouse’s ball, two coils and a CD-spindle’s base plate:
The metal ball represents a charged particle of any kind.
The two coils represent the drift-tubes which most accelerators use.
So every time the particle (ball) crosses the drift-tubes (coils) it gets accelerated:
Wow, that's really sweet. You should give it a bit more juice and see how fast you can get it to go.
awesome! very cool video
its like the particle keeps getting accelerated, its amazing. Good stuff my friend, you are very smart.
that's cool, be interesting to build one with a switchable 'branch' that you can use kinda like a circular railgun…
that's awesome :O
that is very awesome
awesome indeed. following.
Very cool. I didn't even know that mice came with metal balls like that in them. Haha.
Kick ass, and well done. I am impressed.
I wonder how fast that could go. xD
dude, that's amazing! great work
Haha too funny. Awesome good up.
that looks complicated!
I#m really impressed! amazing
Thats amazing bro
That's really REALLY cool!! Love it!
lol, that's so awesome man
wow this is great!
Could this be easily scaled/sped up?
Thats awesome, i would never think to do something like that. Great job!
hallo, ich verstehe nicht, warum das Relais notwendig ist ?
Würde gerne eine kleine Erklärung erhalten … Danke im Vorraus !
That's so awesome. I wish I could build stuff like that.
that is indeed awesome
don´t fully understand it- but it looks great
gonna use the idea for my project ! ^__^
Oh man, I want to see more like this!
To bad it was HADed.. now ts gonna get trolls. >:( but this explains it all!
I expect you to one day be iron man. Don't disappoint me.
Check out my blog!!
I would like to point that it's not drift tube that accelerate particule in an accelerator, but radio-frequency cavities. Here is one from CERN previous accelerator LEP : http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4005/5132123426_889bdda859.jpg
That's actually really awesome. I love building stuff like this.
WTF UBER COOL!
I would love to see how this turns out. This is spectacular! You are very bright!
Some good stuff, I want to see more from you!
That's so awesome… Dude, I am definitely following you!
That do looks interesting and awesome! 😀
Neat, acceleration project. I wouldn't know what to do with it other than get one of my pets chase it around and around in circles, haha.
That is really really cool, and it hasn't killed anyone so you're beating the LHC.
thats awesome!!! dont be makin any black holes ya hear??
Looks great, really well made
Physics faculties in schools would love to see these things to explain principles to pupils and students. With a larger diameter and extra drift tubes, you could turn this into a nice business enterprise.
Incredibly cool!! Does it work too?
Black hole time? Black hole time!
You just gave me an awesome idea 🙂 As straight forward as this looks, can you post the plans? from what I can tell its a steel ball on a track being accelerated by electromagnets. How do you sequence the magnets so that they accelerate the ball instead of slowing it down?
And here I was content with the volcano I made for the science fair.
That one is AWESOME really impressedm e alot !
Is there anyway you can provide more detail about how to build this, or maybe some links to where I could find out more? My 10 year old wants to make one for a school project.
Hallo! I'm sorry there are no further links to this project!
I am extremely impressed with your writing skills as
well as with the layout on your blog. Is this
a paid theme or did you customize it yourself?
Anyway keep up the nice quality writing, it's rare to see a great blog like this one today.

do you have a tutorial of the model?
do you have instructions for this?
Amazing, that is truly fairly sweet. You need to provide this a little more liquid and find out exactly how quick you will get this to visit.
