Almost there

Although I found that this phenomenon (relativistic detuning of particle beams) can happen, we won't be able to see it in this experiment. The reason is that the power of the beam is not big enough; we would need a more powerful or a longer beam. This is somewhat a disappointment (tom will be too) but hey, at least I will have figured out everything that needs to be done in order to actually observe in later experiments.
