User Facilities at a Glance

HEP User Facilities

The High Energy Physics program supports the following national scientific user facilities:

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.
