National Synchrotron Light Source (NSLS). The world’s brightest source of X-ray and UV radiation, for basic and applied studies in condensed matter, surface studies, photochemistry and photophysics, lithography, crystallography, small-angle scattering and X-ray microscopy. Contact Roger Klaffky, National Synchrotron Light Source. Telephone: (516) 2824974.

High Flux Beam Reactor (HFBR). For the study of fundamental problems in solid state and nuclear physics and in structural biology and chemistry Contact Roger Klaffky (see above).

Alternating Gradient Synchrotron (AGS). For basic research in elementary particle physics. Work began in 1986 to allow for a fivefold increase in AGS proton intensity and a 20-fold increment of polarized proton intensity. It also allows for the acceleration of heavy ions up to and beyond gold and sets the stage for a Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider. Contact: Derek Lowenstein, Accelerator Department. Telephone: (516) 282-4611.
