Groundbreaking results promise smaller, cheaper therapy machines that could revolutionise cancer treatment and more

Landmark technology that could revolutionise cancer therapy and pave the way for cleaner, safer nuclear reactors in the future, has been published in Nature Physics yesterday, 8 January 2012.

The pioneering EMMA (Electron Model for Many Applications) accelerator is a prototype for a brand new type of particle accelerator that will massively impact fundamental science by changing the way such accelerators across the world are designed and built in the future. The paper reports the first experimental results from EMMA, confirming the proof of principle underlying its technology.
