What we do:

Near-term R&D. This program operates and supports the test facilities at SLAC utilized to develop and test near-term solutions for accelerator systems including rf structures and power sources as well as beam optical, diagnostic and collimation systems. These include the Next Linear Collider Test Accelerator (NLCTA), Accelerator Structure Test Area (ASTA), and L-band rf test facilities at End Station B. It will also support the operation of FACET, End Station A, and the ATF/ATF2 program at KEK. This program works closely with the Klystron and the Power Conversion R&D groups and requires other general accelerator support functions.
