Nyttan med partikelfysik

Som jag tidigare nämnt finns det ovänte fördelar med partikel acceleratorer. I en artikel "symmetry" redogör man för några av dessa.
Nedan några citat
“A direct line of descent between the basic research done at particle physics labs and things like the World Wide Web, MRI machines, cancer therapy, and superconductors can be made”

"The semiconductor industry relies on accelerator technology to implant ions in silicon chips, making them more effective in consumer electronic products, such as computers, cell phones, and MP3 players."

"Researchers used the Advanced Photon Source at Argonne National Laboratory to develop Kaletra, one of the world’s most-prescribed drugs to fight AIDS."

"Artificial human joints, such as those for the hip, last longer when industry uses particle accelerators to implant ions and harden the metal material."

"The auto industry uses particle accelerators to treat the material for radial tires, eliminating the use of solvents that pollute the environment."

"Superconducting wire developed for particle accelerators made it possible to create powerful magnets for medical diagnostic tools such as magnetic resonance imaging, or MRI."
