Best Answer

The first particle accelerator was built more around the time of 1927 (resonance linear accelerator) about eight years after Rutherford first split the nucleus. But not too sure one that, I have other sources saying 1929, but definitely not as late as 1972. I do know that the first successful cyclotron (a type of circular particle accelerator, which was basically the ground work for the cynchrocyclotron spelling?) was built and tested in 1931 by Ernest Lawrence.
