The Integrated Science and Accelerator Technology Hall (ISAT Hall) is a multidisciplinary laboratory performing research and development in the areas of accelerator physics, nuclear physics, materials science, and medical applications of accelerators. Research experiences are available to high school through post-doctoral students. The facility is supported by Indiana University, state and federal grants, and user fees and contracts. The laboratory is staffed by approximately 130 highly trained scientific, technical, and administrative staff members and serves approximately 60 on-site graduate students, postdoctoral research fellows and physics faculty members. In addition, research and development activities are carried out by scientists and students from around the world.
A common element throughout the ISAT Hall programs is the use of particle accelerators. The nuclear physics program is now carried out using accelerators at a number of national laboratories; however the local facility continues to operate several accelerators used in the other aspects of the program. The laboratory accelerator facilities are available for use by academic or commercial institutions.
