Welcome to the AD/APC FAST Facility

The mission of the Fermilab Accelerator Science and Technology (FAST) Facility is to develop a fully-equipped R&D accelerator chain intended to support research and development of accelerator technology for the next generation of particle accelerators. The primary focus of this effort is the Integrable Optics Test Accelerator (IOTA) ring, which will be able to accept injection with either of the following:

  • 150 MeV electrons from a photoinjector-based superconducting RF linear accelerator.
  • 2.5 MeV protons (H+) from the IOTA Proton Injector (formerly HINS).

For more on specific projects related to the IOTA injectors and ring, visit the projects portal.
