How to use Accelerators in a sentence
Most hardware accelerators will directly render polygons to scenes therefore freeing up processor time for other tasks.
The Department operates two accelerators, causing charged atoms (ions) to reach 10% of the speed of light.
In 2006 a further three linear accelerators will be bought to bring the total at the new West of Scotland Cancer Center to 11.
There are exceptions - some special purpose chips have kept up with the pace, graphics accelerators being the obvious example.
Most hardware accelerators will directly render polygons to scenes freeing up processor time for other tasks.Advertisement
This is called magnetic bremsstrahlung or synchrotron radiation (after radiation observed from particle accelerators by that name ).
A major component of modern linear accelerators which assists this technique is the multi-leaf collimator (MLC ).
Particle physics experiments are performed at accelerators where the products of head-on collisions between matter and antimatter are studied with huge detectors.
In order to deliver the radiation to the patient we use devices called medical linear accelerators, or " linacs " .

Even where new linear accelerators have been purchased, often with Lottery money, there are not always the staff to operate them.
This implied that there should be 48 additional linear accelerators in the UK, of which 22 would replace old cobalt machines.
Other UK accelerators The worldÃ¢s leading pulsed neutron and muon source is based at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory in Oxfordshire.
Particle Accelerators are devices used to accelerate charged elementary particle Accelerators are devices used to accelerate charged elementary particles or ions to high energies.Advertisement
However, it is widely felt that the standard model is incomplete (hence the need to build ever more powerful particle accelerators ).
The Radiotherapy Department now boasts a total of ten linear accelerators.
