A Next-Generation Particle Accelerator

Posted by in category: biotech/medical

In early 2020, the FACET-II facility aims to open for use by scientists across the world. Plasma accelerators are compact accelerators that are more affordable. FACET-II will be the upgraded version of the current FACET facility. Where the aim of the upgrade is to get the electron beam brighter by about 100 or even 1000 times. FACET-II will be the home of experiments that will add to medical and x-ray science, and particle physics. Currently, potential users are submitting proposals for experiments they would like to carry out at FACET-II. A program advisory committee will evaluate the proposals and select the most exciting ones with the largest impact in science for the upcoming experimental runs.
