How the electronic collider works

In the collider, positrons and electrons spin, collide with each other at high speed, and detect the "fragments" produced by the collision—secondary particles, and study them to understand the many mysteries of the microstructure of matter. Although we cannot predict what kind of practical application these research results will have, we can believe that the discovery of micro-mysteries will have a profound impact on human life, just as the discovery of electromagnetic waves has become the leader of the information age and the nuclear nucleus. The research has led to the widespread application of nuclear energy like that. The use of synchrotron radiation, a type of optical radiation that occurs when electrons are deflected in the collider, can also expand the study of molecules and atoms from static and structural to dynamic and functional.
