ACAS

Australian Collaboration for Accelerator Science

Accelerator science is both a discipline in its own right within modern physics and provides highly powerful tools for discovery and innovation in many other fields of scientific research. As such, it holds a distinguished position in enabling and shaping the modern world from the discovery and study of the atomic properties of materials, to biomedical research and the
treatment of illnesses, unravelling environmental processes and finally to the fundamental understanding of how the Universe was created. Throughout its history Australia has participated and made key contributions to the field of accelerator science, including the invention of the synchrotron acceleration principle. To maintain and develop state of the art accelerator based facilities in Australia, the Australian Collaboration for Accelerator Science (ACAS) has been established.
