Current Projects

A compact, multi-beam particle accelerator. We took an existing concept for compact accelerators and shrank it by more than an order of magnitude.

Measure carbon in soil using neutron scattering techniques opens up the possibility to measure carbon on large acre-sized fields. A tool urgently needed for enabling carbon sequestration in soil.

Exploring the formation of color centers under non-equilibrium conditions

Neutralized Drift Compression Experiment

A high-intensity ion induction accelerator enables exploration of materials modification, radiation effects and beam physics for fusion and other applications.

Vanadium oxide coating for high temperature superconducting magnet quench protection

Exploring new ways to detect dark matter.


We open sourced some of the software we use at the test stand and contribute to other open source software we use.
