HIGS . . .

The newest accelerator facility operated by TUNL is the HIGS at the Duke Free Electron Laser Laboratory (DFELL). The DFELL houses an accelerator based photon source in a 52,000 square-foot facility. There are two types of primary photon beams available at the DFELL: the HIGS with energies from 2 to 60 MeV and an optical beam with continuous tunable wavelength from IR to VUV. Both photon beam types are produced by an electron storage ring free electron laser (FEL) and its undulators.

User Information on Accelerator Facilities

TUNL operates three accelerator facilities for nuclear physics research. All are located on the campus of Duke University. Two are low-energy charged-particle beam facilities and the other is a high intensity Gamma-ray beam facility. User information on all of the TUNL facilities is provided below.
