CENPA supports a broad program of experimental physics research in fundamental symmetries, neutrinos, muons, axions, and non-Newtonian gravitation.  A major portion of our effort is involved with experiments done elsewhere using equipment we develop here, supporting a vigorous research program at sites as varied as the Sanford Underground Research Facility in South Dakota, Fermilab in Illinois, the Paul Scherrer Institute in Switzerland, and the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in Germany.  CENPA is home to the Axion Dark Matter eXperiment (ADMX) and the Eöt-Wash precision gravity group.  A 9-MV Tandem Van de Graaff Accelerator provides intense beams of light ions, and the world’s most intense helium-6 source.
