HERACLES Beamline to Accelerate Cathode Research
Cornell is breaking new ground in electron beam research with the HERACLES beamline, a state-of-the-art electron gun that mimics the harsh environments of the world’s largest particle colliders. Leading this charge are CLASSE Researchers and graduate students who have built HERACLES in Newman Laboratory to improve the strength of photocathodes developed for high-current beam operation. Pictured above: Graduate student Sam Levenson and CLASSE Research Associate Matt Andorf show off the HERACLES beamline in Newman Lab.
