particle accelerator graphene laser ion acceleration study University Osaka

Proton therapy has been used clinically for decades to shoot particles into cancer cells to break down their DNA and remove the harm of their continued growth.

Thanks to the superlative properties of graphene, researchers from the University of Osaka, in collaboration with the National Institutes for Quantum Science and Technology, Kobe University, and the National Central University in Taiwan were able to achieve energetic ion acceleration.

Typical particle acceleration works by using electric fields to speed up and increase the energy of a beam of p...
