Question 10

Evolved from early designs by Szilard and Lawrence, THIS APPARATUS uses a time-variable magnetic field to bend the path of particles and allow them to be accelerated to relativistic velocities utilizing a long, thin torus as a pathway. It is distinguished from its predecessor by the variability of the accelerating field in time rather than space. Famous examples include the Bevatron at Berkeley, the Tevatron at Fermilab, and the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. This word is also used as an adjective to describe the radiation emitted as particle momentum is increased and the particle is forced to maintain a curved path.
