A particle accelerator is designed to accelerate basic charge particles , such as electrons, protons and ions, to higher energy. FRIB (Facility for Rare Isotope Beam) built on site MSU, is an modern example to accelerate various ions to hit targets for rare isotope production. 

Hao research group focuses on the better understanding of the nonlinear dynamics of the charged particles in accelerators and developing the statistical methods for analyzing the giant amount of diagnostic datas from modern accelerator, taking advantage of the latest high performance computation techniques.
