At the Louisiana Accelerator Center, we are engaged in international-level research. Here, the diversity of the application field is put to use to study environmental changes in the Mississippi Delta, investigate pathways of mercury, and the effects of energetic ion space radiation on animal and plant tissue.
MeV ion beams such as produced by an accelerator at the Louisiana Accelerator Center are a powerful tool for analysis and modifying materials on a micro- to nanometre size scale.This fits perfectly with the University’s ethos: “Research for a Reason."
The diversity of our research program enables LAC to offer research possibilities for unique industrial collaborations as well as undergraduate and graduate level research projects. We also invite visiting PhD students and senior researchers from the LAC, on campus, nationally, and internationally.
