FACET 2013 Users Meeting

July 25 & 26, 2013
Mad River Conference Room (B52) - View Map
SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory
Menlo Park, California
FACET-Facility for Advanced Accelerator Experimental Tests at SLAC-will provide high energy density electron and positron beams with peak currents of roughly 20 kA that are focused down to a 20x20 micron transverse spot size at an energy of 20 GeV. FACET's unique high-power beams will provide important science opportunities in many fields. FACET is one of two facilities that will meet the Department of Energy Mission Need Statement for an Advanced Plasma Acceleration Facility. With FACET, the SLAC linac will support a unique program concentrating on second-generation research in plasma wakefield acceleration with further time allotted for Dielectric Wakefield experiments. We also allow for smaller experiments that can take advantage of the high power FACET beams and are looking to expand our user community to include studies with THz radiation.
 
The FACET 2013 User Meeting will be held at SLAC in conjunction with the 4th SAREC Review on July 25-26th. There will be opportunities to discuss user issues with SLAC management and staff and to interact with other users when the SAREC committee is in closed sessions.
