Novel accelerators for our future

Stand number: 48


A new type of particle accelerator has been developed and demonstrated for the first time. Named ‘EMMA’, the ‘Electron Model for Many Applications’ is a prototype electron accelerator, which is now operating in the UK. Due to its unique advantages, this type of accelerator could solve a number of the big challenges identified in the Innovation Union, in particular in the areas of healthy aging, energy and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Come to our stand to learn how EMMA works, see a real section of the accelerator and discover how it might improve our lives in the future.
