I don't recall the technical set-up. But although I couldn't see the original quote at the New Scientist blog url for some reason, is it possible that the author said "neutrons" when it should be "neutral particles"? Neutral particle beams (basically neutral hydrogen atoms) can be fired from accelerators. They are positive charged first (stripped of an electron) so they couple with the field and then neutralised again by combining with an electron beam. I believe these can be brought near the speed of light. Martin Shough Listen to 'Strange Days...
