All Major Particle Accelerator Locations Around the World

Many countries/institutes/organizations have their own Particle Accelerators, but where they are located? Let’s see some of the Major Particle Accelerator Locations Around the World.

What is a Particle Accelerator

Since this blog is about, Particle Accelerator Locations Around the world, but still let’s have a basic intro about Particle accelerators.

When we hear the word Particle Accelerator, the first thing that comes to our mind is The large hydron collider, a scientific tool that is used to accelerate particles.

Yes, it’s exactly the same, Particle Accelerators Accelerate Particles which include proton, neutron, electron, positron, etc.

Basically charged atomic particles move through a given path with the help of an electromagnetic field that helps to keep that particle intact within that circular tube or linear tube or whatever the shape may be.

The greater the electromagnetic field energy the greater the speed of the particle, so the major purpose of the Particle Accelerator is to collide the ultra-fast charged particles with each other for generating heat, energy, plasma, etc.

So let’s see what are the places where Particle Accelerator is found around the globe.

According to data, there are almost 30,000 particle accelerators around the world, you might not know but one of them is near you as well.

For example, you are near Louvre Museum, there’s a particle accelerator below the glass pyramid as well.

Particle Accelerator Locations around the world

In the Basement Physisst use the particle accelerator named “AGLae”

Particle Accelerator Locations

It’s basically used for cultural preservation, unrevealing the components from which the artifact is made of.

Particle Accelerator Locations

So the point is that there are many Particle Accelerators around the world, not all of them are used for particle collision or for atomic dismantling, many of them, have different purposes and most of them are hidden from the world.

According to my research, these are some of the Particle Accelerators around the Globe.

Majorly there are 4 types of Particle Accelerators, for more info have a look at “Top 4 Types of Particle Accelerators that you should know

Particle Accelerator Locations Based Location, Type, Shape, Years of Operation, Kinetic Energy, and Discoveries

Very few countries around the world can afford Particle Accelerators, here are some of the locations of particle accelerators around the world, right from Cyclotron to Synchrotron, from High-Intensity Hadron Accelerator to Electron Hadron Accelerator, from Electron-Positron collider to Hadron collider, we have covered all possible Electron, Proton, Neutron accelerators around the world.

Names of Particle Accelerator Locations Based on Continents

So far date, European Continent has contributed most of the Particle Accelerators followed by North America and others as well.

In this, we are seeing which continents own which Particle Accelerators, and in which places they are located around the specific continent.

1) European Continent

As European Continent contributes to most of the Particle Accelerators, so this is the list of available particle accelerators in the European continent
