Wilson Synchrotron Laboratory is home to one of the most powerful accelerators in the world, allowing scientists to harness the power of light to answer questions about the world around us. Take a tour of Wilson Lab to explore Cornell’s historic synchrotron (including a tour of the underground tunnel), electron/positron storage ring (CESR), our x-ray experimental floor (CHESS), and peek into the future of synchrotron radiation research.
Tours are primarily scheduled on Tuesday mornings, year-round. Please use the scheduling tool below to sign up. During the summer and other operational down periods, tours are occasionally available on other days.
