Center for Accelerator Science and Education

The Center for Accelerator Science and Education (CASE) will pursue cutting edge accelerator science and R&D, training of next generation accelerator scientists - graduate and post doctoral – through courses, laboratory and experiments on accelerators. Undergraduate opportunities will play a significant goal of attracting students to the graduate program through introduction to accelerator courses, accelerator laboratory work and summer research opportunities at BNL. The proposed educational program will start with a short term abbreviated educational program of undergraduate, graduate and R&D that will evolve over time.

Goals

The main goals of CASE are:

The development of CASE capitalizes on resources at both institutions:

  • The BNL Accelerator Research and Development Division is a premier center for accelerator development in a broad spectrum of sciences, with many outstanding scientists already affiliated with and teaching at SBU; many of the SBU faculty in various fields already use the existing accelerator based facilities at BNL for their own research;
  • Stony Brook University has a recently retired research accelerator – the Tandem Van de Graaff (TvDG) – whose control room has been renovated to become a modern Physics Teaching Laboratory (PTL) that serves graduate, undergraduate students as well as K-12 teachers and students.

Research Opportunities

CASE faculty are involved in many exciting projects. Please contact us for more information.

  • We are looking for students to work on the Stony Brook Tandem Van de Graff accelerator to:
    1. Finish implementing the new control system.
    2. Implement new experiments for the Stony Brook Graduate Laboratory.

    These are ideal MSI minor projects. Contact: Thomas K Hemmick <Thomas.Hemmick@stonybrook.edu>

  • Accelerator R&D Division of Collider-Accelerator Department, BNL provide exciting acceleration R&D research opportunities towards the future accelerator science, technology and facilities. We are looking for graduate students to do thesis research. The projects include:
    1. The design of electron-ion collider, eRHIC
    2. The demonstration of Coherent Electron Cooling (CeC)
    3. The development of Low Energy RHIC electron Cooling (LEReC)
    4. High average current polarized electron cathode and injector
    5. Superconductor RF cavity (accelerating cavities and deflecting cavities)
    6. Study of the muon colliders
    7. Ideal testbed for new accelerator concepts: Accelerator Test Facility (ATF)

    There are both MSI and Ph.D. topics. Contact: Vladimir Litvinenko <Vladimir.Litvinenko@StonyBrook.edu>
