中性的分子也能被同步加速器加速

一个可以加速中性粒子――而不是通常的带电粒子――的同步加速器在德国建成。这个装置使得在绝对零度的条件下中性分子发生碰撞成为了可能。在绝对零度附近,分子的行为更加像一个波,而不是粒子。

Synchrotron accelerates neutral molecules (Jan 21)

http://physicsweb.org/article/news/11/1/18

A synchrotron that can accelerate neutral -- rather than charged -- particles has been unveiled by physicists in Germany. The device opens up the possibility of colliding neutral molecules at temperatures close to absolute zero, where molecules behave less like particles and more like waves (Nature Physics doi:10.1038/nphys513).
