Towards the Construction of the Most Powerful Microscope Using Particle Accelerators

Prof Bruce Mellado

About 500 physicists gathered in Amsterdam, Holland, in April to discuss the prospects for this new more powerful accelerator. Prof Bruce Mellado was invited to give a plenary talk at the opening day, attended by the Director General of CERN and other leading members of the High Energy Physics community internationally. Prof Mellado discussed the possibility of attaching a small accelerator of electrons for head on collisions with the protons and heavy Ions of the FCC, which is referred to as the FCC-he option.
