Hall A wide shot of detectors

Scientists from across the country and around the world use the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility to advance mankind's understanding of the atom's nucleus — and thus of matter itself.

To probe nuclei, scientists use continuous beams of high-energy electrons from CEBAF — Jefferson Lab's unique Continuous Electron Beam Accelerator Facility. They also use the advanced particle-detection and ultra-high-speed- data acquisition equipment in CEBAF's three experimental halls.
