Anyone who has read this blog for any considerable period of time would have read several of my entries on trying to destroy the myth that "particle accelerator" only means "particle collider". This is of course patently false. People who majored in accelerators physics are not even high energy physicists. In fact, many are engineers. Still, when people hear the name "particle accelerators", they immediately associate that with particle physics.
The American Physical Society (APS) and the Division of Particle and Beams within the APS, has produced this wonderful brochure that ANYONE can read and educate him/herself on what an accelerator is, and how it is more than just something used in high energy physics particle collider. In fact, the MAJORITY of the application and use of particle accelerators are NOT for high energy physics.
This is a good brochure to read and maybe print.
