The Argonne Tandem Linac Accelerator System (ATLAS) is a world-renowned center for cutting edge research in nuclear physics. A large component of the research done at ATLAS deals with rare isotopes.


This is an example of the niobium superconducting RF cavities used to accelerate particles. These cavities are cooled to 4.2 Kelvin or -452  F.

This new gamma ray detector is still under construction.


Do you recognize this gamma ray detector? It was used in the first Hulk movie!


A nice view of the beamline.
