FACET-II provides a major upgrade over current FACET capabilities and the breadth of the potential research program makes it truly unique. It will synergistically pursue accelerator science that is vital to the future of both advanced acceleration techniques for High Energy Physics, ultra-high brightness beams for Basic Energy Science, and novel radiation sources for a wide variety of applications. An international group of high energy physicists are interested in using it as a foundation for the world’s the first photon collider. Nuclear physicists have proposed using the unprecedentedly high intensity gamma beams to study the structure of nuclei and as a novel particle source for future colliders. No other test facility has attracted such broad interest across so many branches of the Office of Science.
For FACET scientific publications, please see our Publications page. FACET-II will continue this leading research into the next decade. Please see below for FACET-II Science Opportunities identified in our 2015 workshop. The Conceptual and Technical design reports for the FACET-II project are also linked to below and contain studies supporting the capabilities of the future facility.
