Experimental work is conducted, in part, at the Triangle Universities Nuclear Laboratory (TUNL). TUNL is a consortium of North Carolina State University, Duke, and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. TUNL consists of three main accelerator facilities:
- The Tandem Accelerator Lab
Powered by a 10 MV van de graff accelerator, this facility delivers proton, helium, and deuterium beams with energies of up to 40 MeV to a range of target areas.
- The High Intensity γ-ray Source (HIγS)
The HIγS facility uses a free electron laser to produce the most instense mono-energetic photon source in the world.
