Accelerator Research User's Facility at


Advanced Superconducting Test Accelerator


The ASTA User's facility will support accelerator research program with SRF linacs (50 MeV and several hundreds of MeV energy beams) and a small storage ring IOTA with the capability of storing either electrons or protons. It will accommodate a broad range of beam-based experiments to study fundamental limitations to beam intensity and to develop transformative approaches to particle-beam generation, acceleration and manipulation which cannot be done elsewhere.

July 23-24, 2013 - 1st Advanced Superconducting Test Accelerator (ASTA) User's and PAC Meeting
