Brookhaven National Laboratory is a global leader in
accelerator, detector, superconductor and related technologies. The
Advanced Technology Research Office (ATRO) consolidates core staff,
research programs, and infrastructure in accelerator, detector, and
related technologies to partner with industry and serve as an incubator
for cross-cutting initiatives to advance U.S. Department of Energy
science, energy, and security missions.
The Instrumentation Division creates customized solutions to
instrumentation challenges—from detectors probing for fundamental
particles created in the formation of the universe to quantum
networks for the internet of the future. Our mission is to develop
advanced technology in support of science and national security. We
maintain in-house expertise in sensors, electronics, and complex
systems and state-of-the-art fabrication, testing, and
Brookhaven's Magnet Division is creating the future of
superconductor and magnet technology. Our mission is to advance the
science and technology of superconducting magnets; to apply these
technologies to support accelerators, fundamental science
discoveries, energy and other industrial applications requiring high
magnetic fields; and ensure a strong national talent pool for
superconducting magnet development in the United States.
Brookhaven is home to a suite of particle accelerators and
sophisticated accelerator-based test facilities—tools for innovation
in fields as diverse as medicine, materials science, electronics
production, and national security. We encourage academic and
industrial partners to collaborate with us to develop new concepts, techniques, and technologies while pursuing
research or industrial goals.
The Accelerator Test Facility (ATF) makes particle accelerator technology available for science and industry
and supports the development of accelerators that meet national needs. The ATF is a user facility where research
teams can develop transformational capabilities to support the fields of energy and environment, medicine, industry,
national security, and discovery science. Access is free to academic and government users.
The Office of Strategic Partnerships & Technology Transfer (SPTT) supports identification, development,
promotion, and establishment of links between technical efforts in ATRO and external national security customers.
Relying on the technical capabilities in the Instrumentation
Division, Magnet Division, and the Accelerator Test Facility, SPTT shares with staff the needs of
organizations including the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) and seeks opportunities
to pivot ATRO efforts to address them. SPTT also assists in the dissemination of information
about proposal calls and development of responsive proposals and presentations to
national security customers.
The Office of Project Management and Engineering (OPME) leverages the knowledge and experience of its team to promote adoption
of best practices in project management and engineering. OPME provides oversight and support to
large- and medium-size projects managed within ATRO and smaller projects led by subordinate organizations. OPME collaborates with engineering leaders in ATRO organizations
to ensure engineering, design, and configuration management best
practices are employed. The office works closely with other
Brookhaven Lab organizations to share best practices and offer
Brookhaven Science Associates manages and operates Brookhaven
National Laboratory. BSA is a partnership between Battelle and The
Research Foundation for the State University of New York on behalf
of Stony Brook University. | More
