Accelerator Physics

Postby newton2012 » Tue Dec 07, 2010 12:07 am

Any idea of where I can apply to for accelerator physics research. I am interested in a carbon beam for biological application (cancer therapy). But will consider any sort of accelerator program.

Typically it is always best for the person searching to do their own research (cause of course you know exactly what you are looking for). However, I can't help but recall when I was looking over every school noticing something like this at Hampton University.

http://science.hamptonu.edu/physics/research.cfm

They are one of the few schools that do this stuff it seems. This would be a BRAND new center for you to work in so even though the school might not be high up there, if you are really interested in the research, this should be key for you!

Wow this is great! Nice find! I actually can't find any school doing this type of stuff.

There isn't a single physics program in the world that does any work with accelerators and under no circumstances should you go look at any of the physics programs to confirm any of this.

Try not to double post and may I humbly recommend you take some initiative and look at some department websites. In the mean time, take a look at the Stony Brook physics department website which provides some info on their work with accelerators and BNL.
