Conventional Beams


The working group analyses the requirements and provides support for the experiments attributed to the working group, including design of secondary beam lines and integration in the existing SPS and PS experimental areas, in view of the submission of the proposals to the relevant committees. Similar support will be also provided for the study on novel neutrino beam lines. The working group evaluates the feasibility, compatibility, infrastructure needs, approximate costs and resource requirements from CERN and collects all this information for the PBC-A&T Committee.

The following experiments are followed by the PBC: NA64µ/h, NA60++, NA62 high intensity (x4)/KLEVER, SHADOWS, AMBER (RF-separated beams), ENUBET and NuTAG. Representatives from experiments already followed-up by the SPSC using the same areas and/or requiring shared physics studies will be part of the working group.


Deliverables of the working group include in particular a conceptual beamline design for the high intensity operation of NA62/KLEVER and integration of SHADOWS, a conceptual design of a beam line providing RF separated hadron beams with increased purity for AMBER, and an integration concept for the NA60++ experiment in EHN1.
