Particle accelerators play an important role in high energy physics, materials and life sciences. They are used to create a very special state of matter — beams of particles (protons, electrons, photons, neutrons, muons, neutrinos etc.). Medical applications of accelerators include radiotherapy, production of radioactive isotopes, hadron therapy and bio-imaging.
