UK scientists have successfully demonstrated energy recovery on the ALICE advanced particle accelerator design, potentially paving the way for new accelerators using a fraction of the energy required under conventional methods. At 2am on 13 December, ALICE's superconducting linear accelerator accelerated electrons to 99.9% of the speed of light, creating a beam with a total energy of 11 million electron volts. This was the first time the ALICE beam had been successfully transported around the...

A major milestone has been achieved in the completion of the UK's next-generation particle accelerator, ALICE, which is set to produce an intense beam of light that will revolutionize the way in which accelerator based light source research facilities will be designed in the future. To mark the occasion, ALICE was visited today, 13 November 2008, by His Royal Highness The Duke of Kent as part of his visit to the Daresbury Science and Innovation Campus. ALICE is based at the Science and...

A world class science project in Britain, dubbed "ËœAlice', is in jeopardy of being moved to the U.S. or Russia due to cuts in Britain's science budget.  The project, conducted at Daresbury labs in Cheshire, is the first particle accelerator of its kind in Europe. The cuts could take effect as early as July, shutting down the project after six years of design and construction and before it has a chance to produce results.Alice, short for Accelerators and Lasers in Combined...
