Peter McIntyre develops new physics and technology for particle accelerators, and applications of that research for practical purposes. Topics include 24 Tesla dipoles capable of tripling the energy of the LHC; polyhedral superconducting cavities to improve the cost/performance of linac colliders; textured-powder Bi-2212 superconductor for high-field MR spectroscopy in molecular medicine and all-electric car motors; and accelerator-driven subcritical fission in molten-salt cores for green nuclear power technology that could provide all of Man's energy for the next 3000 years.
