Courses taught at CAS
The Center for Accelerator Science in the Physics Department at Old Dominion University is an interdisciplinary research center, involving faculty from four departments. The Center operates in close partnership with the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility. The Center is unique in Virginia and one of only a handful of such programs in the country. The goal of the Center is to meet the nation's need for scientists and engineers who will advance the next generation of accelerators and light-sources - tools that enable an ever-widening range of basic and applied research, numerous medical applications, as well as industrial and Homeland Security functions. The Center offers both researchers and students access to state-of-the-art facilities at ODU and Jefferson Laboratory.
