Accelerator Research & Development Division

The Accelerator R&D Division (ARDD) was formed at the Collider-Accelerator Department (C-AD), in order to highlight and consolidate the significant accelerator R&D efforts occurring at C-AD. The Division is headed by the Departmentís Associate Chair for Accelerator R&D, Ilan Ben-Zvi.  The Accelerator R&D Division comprises of the following groups:  LHC Accelerator Research Program (LARP) Group, Energy Frontier Accelerator Group, Accelerator Test Facility (ATF) Group, the Coherent electron Cooling Group, the Cornell-Brookhaven Test Accelerator (CBETA) Group, the eRHIC Physics Group, the Polarized Gun Group, and the Superconducting RF (SRF) Group. In addition to R&D efforts the members of these groups participate in and support RHIC operations. The Accelerator R&D Division also has a connection to the Stony Brook / Brookhaven Center for Accelerator Science and Education (CASE).

Mission Statement

The mission of the Accelerator R&D Division at the Collider-Accelerator Department is to develop and improve the suite of particle / heavy ion accelerators used to carry out the program of accelerator-based experiments at BNL, and to design and construct new accelerator facilities in support of the BNL and national missions. The Division participates in operations and provides a venue for Accelerator Division staff to participate in R&D. The division performs all these functions in an environmentally responsible and safe manner under a rigorous conduct of operations approach.
