21st Accelerator Test Facility (ATF) Users' Meeting

Call for Proposals: User proposals for ATF beam time are now being accepted for Calendar Year 2018. To ensure full evaluation, interested researchers should submit their proposals by Friday, November 2, 2018. For detailed information regarding proposal submission, proposal categories, and the beam time request process, please visit the ATF User Access Page.


The Accelerator Test Facility (ATF) is a DOE Office of Science National User Facility that provides users with high-brightness electron- and laser-beams and ultrafast electron diffraction capabilities. The ATF has provided a facility for users to study the properties of modern accelerators and new techniques of particle acceleration and radiation generation for over 25 years. It is the designated user facility for the Accelerator Stewardship Program.

During the meeting, the ATF Program Advisory Committee (APAC) will review the progress of the ongoing user experimental program and approve proposals for new experiments that are consistent with the ATF's mission within the Accelerator Stewardship Program.
