Circular and linear devices used to produce high-energy high-speed beams of charged particles, such as electrons, protons, or heavy ions. Used for research in high-energy and nuclear physics, radiation research, medical and some industrial applications. This category is designed for sites providing information on specific accelerator operating facilities ( not Research Centers or Experiments ). It will also include links for education, publications and news, software, and equipment and service providers.
