Description

The Brookhaven Accelerator Test Facility (ATF) pioneered the concept of a user facility for studying complex properties of modern particle accelerators and new methods of accelerating electrons and ions. The ATF successfully serves this mission, now for more than two decades.Unique CapabilitiesThe ATF’s high-power, picosecond (10-12 sec. pulse length), carbon dioxide, infrared laser (?=10µm) is unique in the world. Synchronized to electron bunches from a state-of-the-art 80 Mega-electron-volt (MeV) linear accelerator, this laser allows the ATF users to explore long-wavelength scaling of strong-field physical processes leading to new approaches for particle acceleration and high-brightness x-ray generation.
