The BNL Advanced Accelerator Group

The Advanced Accelerator Group investigates the application of new accelerator concepts to the design of future particle physics facilities. Our main emphasis is presently on the design of a high performance neutrino factory. Some major theoretical and simulation work includes the design of ionization cooling systems, including cooling rings, to improve the quality of low energy muon beams, and the study of FFAG accelerators, both in general and specifically for rapid acceleration of muon beams. Our major experimental efforts are devoted to the demonstration of target systems suitable for multi-MW proton beams.
