Welcome to UMER

The University of Maryland Electron Ring
The University of Maryland Electron Ring (UMER) is a world-class research facility in beam and accelerator physics at the Institute for Research in Electronics and Applied Physics, on the University of Maryland, College Park campus.  Using a scaled low-energy electron beam, UMER cleverly accesses the intense, high-brightness, regime of beam operation in accelerators, at a much lower cost than larger and more energetic machines.  UMER therefore makes an ideal testbed for experimenting in pushing up the brightness of existing and future accelerators.



Research Areas of Interest

  • Experimental beam physics
  • Nonlinear accelerator optics
  • Ring physics
  • Space charge in beams
  • Advanced beam diagnostics
  • Beam halo
  • Computation
  • Nonlinear dynamics

Funding for the project is provided by the U.S. Department of Energy, Office of Science, and the National Science Foundation.
