    The answer is; bombarded

    John Cockcroft and Ernest Walton split the lithium atom using accelerated protons. The atomic nuclei were split and the physicist observed alpha particles (two protons and two neutrons bound together into a particle identical to a helium-4 nucleus) as one of the products. The experiment also led to the discovery of the neutron and positron subatomic particles.
