User Facilities at a Glance

All User Facilities

National Spherical Torus Experiment – Upgrade (NSTX-U)

at Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory

The NSTX-U is a magnetic confinement fusion facility employing a spherical torus confinement configuration to explore the potential stability and confinement advantages of this compact tokamak concept.

Fermilab Accelerator Complex

at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory

Fermilab Accelerator Complex consists of four accelerators that work together to provide world-class particle beams for experiments at the Intensity Frontier.

Facility for Advanced Accelerator Experimental Tests (FACET)

at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory

FACET is an Accelerator-based User Facility where experiments in beam-driven plasma wakefield particle acceleration are carried out.

Accelerator Test Facility (ATF)

at Brookhaven National Laboratory

The Accelerator Test Facility (ATF) provides users with high power lasers synchronized with high brightness electron beams, providing a testbed for exploring the science of particle acceleration and radiation generation, and for developing new accelerator technologies.

Argonne Tandem Linac Accelerator System (ATLAS)

at Argonne National Laboratory

ATLAS is a leading facility for nuclear structure research in the United States providing a wide range of beams for nuclear reaction and structure research to a large community of users from the US and abroad.

Continuous Electron Beam Accelerator Facility (CEBAF)

at Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility

CEBAF is a world-leading facility in the experimental study of hadronic matter, used by scientists to probe the interior of the nucleus to study its properties.

Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC)

at Brookhaven National Laboratory

RHIC is a world-class scientific research facility which hundreds of physicists from around the world use to study what the universe may have looked like in the first few moments after its creation.
