Physics Colloquium

"Potential and Issues for Future Accelerators and Ultimate"

Presented by Stephen Brooks, BNL

Tuesday, September 18, 2018, 3:30 pm — Large Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

Particle colliders have been remarkably successful tools in particle and nuclear physics. What are the future trends and limitations of accelerators as they currently exist, and are there possible alternative approaches? What would the ultimate collider look like? This talk examines some challenges and possible solutions. Accelerating a single particle rather than a thermal distribution may allow exploration of more controlled interactions without background. Also, cost drivers are possibly the most important limiting factor for large accelerators in the foreseeable future so emerging technologies to reduce cost are highlighted.
