Particle Accelerators don’t build themselves!

Paul Aden, Thomas Jones, Ryan Cash and Niklas Templeton
STFC (Science and Technology Facilities Council)

Engineers at Daresbury Laboratory have been designing and constructing particle accelerators for over 50 years! These machines further our understanding of the universe, and improve the world we live in. Using demonstrations this talk describes some of the engineering challenges involved in the design, construction and operation of these large Science Facilities. The team will discuss how Daresbury is contributing to the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, the European Spallation Source in Sweden, our own accelerator projects on the Sci-Tech Daresbury Campus and will show you how accelerator technology applications impacts on your life.
