Core Technologies

What We Do
  • The design, construction and operation of Fixed Field Alternating Gradient (FFAG) electron accelerators

  • Radiation detection and measurement using scintillators

  • Gas Cluster Ion Beams (GCIB) and Accelerated Neutral Atom Beam (ANAB)

  • Improving the performance of superconducting RF accelerator cavity performance using GCIB surface treatments

  • High-energy ion implanters for VLSI semiconductor-device manufacture.  The design and operation of heavy-ion linear accelerators based on independently-phased-RF cavities

  • The design of Medium-current ion implanters for use in VLSI semiconductor device manufacturing.  Designer of beamline optics, ion sources, beam scanners,  and beamline modifications required to reduce wafer contamination caused by the beam sputtering materials.

  • High-current H- ion sources for the production of spallation neutrons

  • Polarized 3He targets and sources.  Spin Exchange Optical Pumping (SEOP) sources of hyperpolarized 3He and 129Xe using high-power diode-laser arrays

  • Polarized neutron experiments

  • Development of the Optically Pumped Polarized H- Ion Sources (OPPIS) for the LAMPF accelerator at Los Alamos National Laboratory

  • Merged electron and ion beam experiments.  Measurement of electron-impact-excitation and electron-impact-ionization cross-sections for ions.

  • Development of surface coatings that prevent spin relaxation of polarized vapors

  • Laser optical pumping and spin relaxation studies
