FACET Users Workshop


Welcome - FACET Users Workshop
FACET 2011 Users Meeting
August 29th & 30th, 2011
Redtail Hawk Conference Room, Building 901 - View Map
SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory
Menlo Park, California

FACET—Facility for Advanced aCcelerator Experimental Tests at SLAC—will provide high energy density electron and positron beams with peak currents of roughly 20 kA that are focused down to a 10x10 micron transverse spot size at an energy of 23 GeV. FACET's unique high-power beams will provide important science opportunities in many fields. FACET is one of two facilities that will meet the Department of Energy Mission Need Statement for an Advanced Plasma Acceleration Facility. With FACET, the SLAC linac will support a unique program concentrating on second-generation research in plasma wakefield acceleration.

We are currently commissioning the new beamline and will soon install the initial four experiments (Plasma Wakefield Acceleration, Ultra-fast Processes in Magnetic Materials, Dielectric Wakefield Acceleration and Coherent Smith-Purcell Radiation) for user assisted commissioning and early science in August.

Please join us for the 2nd FACET User Meeting at SLAC immediately following the run on August 29-30, 2011. On the agenda will be machine performance and plans, initial experimental results, User wishes for the future and, of course, an end of the run party on Monday the 29th.

If you cannot attend the User Meeting, please consider joining us at the FACET Satellite Meeting on Tuesday September 6th, 2011 at iPAC. For more information on the Satalitte Meeting, please contact Mark Hogan.

Please contact one of us with any questions. We look forward to seeing you this summer.
