Hey!

I would like to know what a particle accelerator that is used in quantum physics experiments is and how much it would cost to either buy or build one. I find quantum mechanics very fascinating and am thinking about trying some experiments on my own, that's why I'm asking.

Cheers!

Can't say. They seem to be out of reach except for a few governments and universities.

@elias0012,
This is the how to guide for backyard particle accelerator creation for boys with a shed or girls with a she den.

Then later with a little more pocket money.

I think she described a laptop accelerator. That might be worse.

@roger,
about the only thing worse would be a lap dog accelerator
