Escape of the Bunkeroom - XVIII Science week

The UAM particle accelerator opens its doors to an escape room where besides having fun you will learn about science. You will have 60 minutes to escape from the bunker and solve the challenge.

When you are going to go into the bunkeroom you are going to find a machine capable of producing particles and accelerating them at very high speeds, almost one tenth of the speed of light. Everyday, a group of scientists produce protons, alpha particles, gold ions, silver or ... whatever happens to play with matter. But something has happened, just when we were about to make the discovery with which they would give us the Nobel Prize, we have lost a particle. We have only one hour to find it before the doors have been locked forever. Your mission will be to find the lost particle inside the bunker.

Remember, if you do not find it in an hour, you will be trapped forever.

XVIII Science week

semana de la ciencia en el aceleradorThe Science Week is organized by the General Directorate for Universities and Research of the Community of Madrid, through Madri+d Foundation for Knowledge and its aim is to encourage the development of harmonious relations between science and society, and contribute to scientists reflect critically with the concerns of society. This year the Science Week of Madrid slogan is "Engánchate a la Ciencia".

CMAM is going to participate once more in the "XVIII Semana de la Ciencia", organizing an open days to show the accelerator hosted at the "Universidad Autónoma de Madrid". This activity includes a visit to the hall of the accelerator to explain the research conducted with the ion accelerator at CMAM and its operation.


The activity is going to take place in November 13th, in two shifts, 11:00 - 13:00 and 17:00 -19:00

If you are interested in this activity, you can make a book on: 91 497 3621 or email:

Popular Science: Paper about the Summer Campus Science 2017 and the use of ion beams at CMAM

The volume of the Spanish Journal of Physics (Vol. 31, Nº4), edited by the Spanish Royal Society of Physics, includes the paper “Guías de onda ópticas: Modificando las propiedades de la materia con un acelerador de iones”. It is an informative paper about the Summer Campus Science which took place at CMAM and it consisted of modifying various materials through the use of ion beams, generating structures called waveguides that were later characterized by the analysis of the changes in their fundamental optical properties. The students learned all the steps involved in a general scientific study and in the particular case of wave guides.


The paper describes how the students made their own waveguides, the measurements carried out by them and the physical phenomenon studied.



Open day in Physics Degree

CMAM participates in the Open day in Physics Degree organized by the Faculty od Sciences for high school and IVET students that will take place on 20th December 2017. As a part of day, which it includes visits to different deparments of UAM Physics, the students will visit the accelerator and will be able to carry out a small illustrative experiment using the accelerator and specially our Internal Microbeam line.
