General Lab Information

Accelerator Division

Accelerator Division

The Accelerator Division operates and continually upgrades a complex of eight accelerators: 2 Tandem Van de Graaff electrostatic accelerators, an Electron Beam Ion Source (EBIS), a 200 MeV H- Linac, the AGS Booster, the Alternating Gradient Synchrotron (AGS), and the 2 rings of the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC).

These machines serve user programs at the Tandems, the Brookhaven Linac Isotope Producer (BLIP), the NASA Space Radiation Laboratory (NSRL), and the 2 RHIC experiments STAR, and PHENIX/sPHENIX. The Division also supports the development of new accelerators and accelerator components.
