ANL Beams and Applications Seminar

The ANL Beam and Applications Seminar is intended for accelerator scientists, engineers and technicians.  Seminars focus on the physics, technology, and applications of particle and photon beams. The seminars are sponsored jointly by the Accelerator Systems Division (ASD), the Advanced Wakefield Accelerator (AWA) group of the High Energy Physics (HEP) Division, and the ATLAS group of the Physics (PHY) Division. This is an activity of the Argonne Accelerator Institute (AAI).

ANL Beam and Applications Seminars are held approximately twice a month. The seminars are organized by a committee. Suggestions for speakers and topics may be directed to any committee member.

Visitors from off-site please contact Carmen Nolasco (, 630-252-6159) to arrange for a gate pass.
