Beam Production

Beam Production:

The Beam Production theme joins materials scientists, chemists, condensed matter physicists and accelerator scientists to invent photocathode materials capable of producing beams with low mean transverse momentum. These beams will improve X-ray sources, particle colliders and electron imaging.
