Accelerators of charged particles: from Rutherford experiments to the Large Hadron Collider
In just 90 years since the first particle accelerator, physics has come to the modelling of processes occurring in stars from the study of the atomic structure. A scientist, specialist in the fields of accelerator physics and engineering Igor Nikolaevich Meshkov told PostNauka why scientists started accelerating and colliding particles at the beginning of the XX century, how colliders differ from accelerators, and why projects like NICA and the Large Hadron Collider are necessary.
Igor Nikolaevich Meshkov, Doctor of Physics and Mathematics, RAS Academician, a chief researcher at the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research, Scientific Leader of the NICA accelerator complex.
