Description

Advanced accelerator research promises to improve the power and efficiency of today's particle accelerators, enhancing applications in medicine and high-energy physics, and providing potential benefits for research in materials, biological and energy science. The Facility for Advanced Accelerator Experiment Tests (FACET) will study plasma acceleration, using short, intense pulses of electrons and positrons to create an acceleration source called a plasma wakefield accelerator. FACET also supports a broad user program in accelerator science, material science and other fields of research that require high-power beams and intense fields. Proposals are solicited from scientists all around the world and peer reviewed by an independent panel of experts.
