Research Opportunities at FACET
FACET will develop more efficient and powerful accelerators through the study of plasma and dielectric wakefield acceleration. The facility will also study new methods to focus accelerator beams, while providing a unique "terahertz" lightsource for materials and biological research.
The study of materials using terahertz radiation—light that falls between the infrared and microwave energy ranges—has brought significant scientific advances. FACET beams will provide unique and exciting new opportunities for discovery—the facility's near-lightspeed electron bunches will be the most intense sources of terahertz radiation in the world.
