A new video released by the University of Liverpool’s Quasar group shows how to build step by step a “salad bowl accelerator”. This easy-to-make device produces amazing results, demonstrating the accelerating power of the electrostatic potential. 

The video, now on YouTube, has been produced as part of a project funded by the Science and Technology Facilities Council to promote accelerator science among schoolchildren.
