Superconducting Particle Accelerator Forum of America


Welcome to the Superconducting Particle Accelerator Forum of the Americas (SPAFOA). The not-for-profit SPAFOA is an industrial forum that promotes the participation of U.S. industry in major Federally funded particle accelerator projects and develops the expertise within industry to apply this technology to the commercial marketplace. The forum provides a vehicle to integrate the resources of the U.S. industrial base into the research, development, manufacturing, construction and operation of major programs based on superconducting radio frequency (SCRF) accelerator technology. The forum's activities include:

Membership in the SPAFOA is open to industries, universities, and Government laboratory contractors interested in developing a strong industrial base in the U.S for this critical emerging technology. Please contact for details and a membership application.


The forum held a member's meeting at Fermilab on November 4. The agenda covered an update of Fermilab's accelerator technology activities, the status of the Illinois Accelerator Research Center, the Long Baseline Neutrino Project, an overview of the lab's technology transfer office, and a longer range view of the lab's high energy physics activities. In addition, we were briefed by SLAC via a remote video link, on the progress of the LCLS II program. Twenty one of our members attended the meeting as well as several Fermilab staff.
