We also use serveral external laboratories for research. Plasma physics experiments are conducted at the major national tokamaks in Boston and San Diego. Experiments in high-energy heavy ion nuclear and particle physics are conducted at large accelerator facilities such as Brookhaven National Laboratory (New York), Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (Illinois), and Stanford Linear Accelerator Center.

Professor Christina Markert is currently involved in the ALICE experiment at CERN. The ALICE experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) studies the Quark Gluon Plasma - a state of matter that exited a few microseconds after the Big Bang.
