Part of the Particle Acceleration and Detection book series (PARTICLE)


Particle accelerators have been widely used for research in physics since the early twentieth century and greatly progressed both scientifically and technologically since then. To get an insight into the physics of elementary particles, one accelerates them to very high kinetic energy, let them impact on other particles, and detect products of the reactions that transform the particles into other particles. The center of mass energy E cm for a head-on collision of two particles with masses m 1 and m 2 and energies E 1 and E 2 is
$$ {E}_{\mathrm{cm}}={\left[2{E}_1{E}_2+\left({m}_1^2+{m}_2^2\right){c}^4+2\sqrt{E_1^2-{m}_1^2{c}^4}\sqrt{E_2^2-{m}_2^2{c}^4}\right]}^{1/2}. $$
