The BTF of the DAΦNE accelerator complex, in the Frascati National Laboratory of the INFN, is in operation since 2004 with an average of 200 beam-days and 25 groups/year. The doubling of the beam-line will allow increasing the access capability, as well as hosting long-term experiments in parallel with the test-beam activities. The activities ongoing for the upgrade of the facility are described
Ralf Diener (DESY)
The DESY II Test Beam Facility will resume operations mid February 2018. The current status and possibilities for future improvements and extensions of the facility will be presented.
Mr Dennis Proft (University of Bonn)
The ELSA facility at Bonn University offers a primary electron beam for two hadron physics experiments and detector test applications. The beam is extracted from a 0.5 to 3.2 GeV storage ring with an energy deviation smaller than 0.1 percent. A dedicated detector test beamline has started operation in mid 2016 and has so far served the local high-energy physics research group in several...
Mr Carsten Grzesik (KPH Mainz)
The Mainz Microtron (MAMI) is an electron accelerator at the Institute for Nuclear Physics in Mainz, that provides beam energies of up to 1.6 GeV. With its narrow beam profile, continous stream of particles and beam currents of up to 100 µA it can be used for multiple test beam applications. One of these is testing detectors at very high rates. Another one is using the possibility of MAMI...
Dr sestini lorenzo (INFN)
In order to further consolidate the present kwnoledge of the Standard Model and to look for deviations from its predictions that would signal new physics effects a new generation of hadron hadron or electron position colliders is often put forward. However also the idea of a muon collider seems to be attractive because such a machine would provide the high centre of mass energy typical...
Lorenzo Uplegger (Fermilab)
The Fermilab Test Beam Facility is a world class facility for testing and characterizing particle detectors. The facility has been in operation since 2005 and has undergone significant upgrades in the last two years. With two operational beam lines, the facility can deliver a variety of particle types and momenta ranging from 120 GeV protons in the primary beam line down to 200 MeV particles...
Ms Blerina Gkotse (CERN)
The upcoming High-Luminosity upgrade of the CERN Large Hadron Collider (HL-LHC) and the R&D on future accelerators (FCC) requires radiation hardness tests and qualification of tracking and calorimetry detectors. Two reference facilities for irradiation tests at CERN are the Proton Irradiation Facility (IRRAD) and the Gamma Irradiation Facility (GIF++). The IRRAD facility, located in the...
This contribution will give an overview of the secondary beam lines of the PSI High Intensity Proton Accelerator (HIPA). Particular emphasis will be given to those facilities currently available for tests.
Dr Maarten van Dijk (CERN)
The East Area at the Proton Synchrotron is one of CERN’s longest running facilities for experiments, beam tests, and irradiations with a history of 55 years. An overview of the available facilities will be given: two beam lines providing secondary hadron or electron beams in the momentum spectrum of 0.5-12 GeV/c complementing the momentum range of the SPS north area, as well as the CHARM and...
Dr Alexander Gerbershagen (CERN)
CERN’s accelerator complex offers a great variety of multi-purpose test-beam facilities. In this presentation, an overview of the secondary beams derived from proton beams extracted from the Super Proton Synchrotron (SPS) will be given. The available secondary particle beam momenta range from about 10 GeV/c up to 400 GeV/c. The available intensities extend from about 10^3 up to 10^7 particles...
Mr Markus Joos (CERN) , Ms Sarah Aretz (CERN)
In 2014 CERN has started to organize “Beamline for Schools” (BL4S), an annual physics competition for high-school students aged 16 and up. In the competition, teams of students from all around the world are invited to propose an experiment to CERN that makes use of a secondary beam of particles with momenta of up to 10 GeV/c from CERN’s Proton Synchrotron (PS). The students have to describe...
