The Accelerator Test Facility (ATF) is a user facility for accelerator and beam physicists. Its users come from the USA and abroad, from universities, industry and national laboratories. The ATF has proven to be an excellent place to train students in the physics of beams. As a DOE designated "flagship facility" to execute the stewardship mission of HEP, experiments at the ATF cover a variety of subjects including laser acceleration, generation of coherent radiation, and advanced accelerator instrumentation.

The use of the ATF electron beam, lasers and diagnostic tools is free of charge for users. The ATF staff is committed to providing expertise and assistance in the design and implementation of user experiments. Proposals to carry out experiments are evaluated in a peer review process by the ATF Program Advisory Committee (APAC). The APAC will meet during the Users' Meeting.
