Visit the recently launched website to learn more on applications of particle accelerators.

First developed almost a century ago for fundamental physics research, particle accelerators now have a very large number of applications, from the well-known applications such as cancer treatment and the production of semiconductors for the electronics industry, to the lesser-known applications such as improving the taste of chocolate and the treatment of water supplies.

The website has been developed as part of the TIARA preparatory phase and outlines many applications of particle accelerators in areas such as Research and Development, Health, Medicine, Industry, Energy, Environment and beyond, showing just how much society benefits from particle accelerators.
