The Bates Laboratory and the Harvard Cyclotron lab use to be the only two labs in New England that I knew of which had high enegy particle accelerators. The Harvard lab shut down and Bates lab will be shutting down in the future. There is a new lab in Boston at the Northeast Proton Therapy Center (has a cyclotron of ~290 MeV). I was wondering if anyone knew of any other accelerator labs in the New England area? Thanks.

This is not exactly "New England", but Long Island, NY is not that far from the Boston area. And Brookhaven Lab is there. Or go to Ithaca NY. Cornell has accelerators galore...

Cornell huh? Thanks! I was totally unaware of that. Where is Cornell again? I was aware of Brookhaven. I decided I want to live in New England though. Speaking of which, thanks. I see spelled New "England" wrong. :tongue: Can you correct that? I shot this off right before I went for a walk and that "looked" like the right spelling. However as more and more time goes by the more I think I'm a touch dyslexic. Thanks.

Recall that I told you to "go" to Ithaca, NY. That's where Cornell is.

Thanks. I didn't know that you were saying that Cornell is in Ithaca. I guess I incorrectly assumed (back in my mind) that you were telling me that Ithaca has accelerators and Cornell has accelerators. Or I missed the Ithica.

Thanks again.
