Prototype Particle Accelerators

Really enjoyed making these two recent videos at the ALICE and EMMA particle accelerators.

They are based at the STFC's Daresbury Laboratory.

Peter Williams, who features in the videos, is clearly a man passionate about his work and did a great job explaining it all.

I've filmed inside a few accelerators, and thing I loved about ALICE and EMMA was how all the "working bits" were exposed.

It was a real prototype, with all the technology "hanging out", as Peter described it.

Stay tuned for more films from Backstage Science.
