This diagram shows how beams in particle colliders are focused before being made to collide. It is designed to be accessible to both visually impaired and seeing students, and can be printed using a swell printer.
Overview and Background
In particle accelerators, beams are focused and then made to collide at a point surrounded by detectors. This diagram illustrates the collision of two beams and can be used to explain the concept to students.
