Abstract:
ATLAS is the world's first superconducting linear accelerator for heavy ions at energies in the vicinity of the Coulomb barrier. This is the energy domain best suited to study the properties of the nucleus, the core of matter, the fuel of stars. ATLAS can provide beams of essentially all stable isotopes from proton to uranium, and a variety of light radioactive beams through our in-flight production program and heavier neutron-rich isotopes from the newly commissioned CARIBU upgrade.

About the TWIST tours:
The TWIST tours are co-organized by Natalia Saraeva (NE) and Raymond Patchak (ESQ) together with the TWIST organizing committee. These tours are designed to give all Argonne employees, including students and postdocs, an opportunity to learn more about the work being done onsite. About three to four tours per year are planned, with a different site for each tour.
