Accelerators in Research

   

While exploring the interior of matter accelerators are used as tools,
either as energy transformers or as super microscopes.

In particle collisions the energy
of the colliding particles can be transformed to mass.
The accelerator can be used as a supermicroscope to "see" quarks.
