From Sicily to Sweden: Ion Source Delivered
The first machine components were lowered into the Accelerator Tunnel Tuesday as ESS took delivery of the LINAC's Ion Source and Low-Energy Beam Transport line from Italy's INFN.Read More
The ESS accelerator high level requirements are to provide a 2.86 ms long proton pulse at 2 GeV at repetition rate of 14 Hz. This represents 5 MW of average beam power with a 4% duty cycle on target.
The ESS Accelerator Division is responsible for the requirements for all systems for the accelerator and assures that core know-how for the full system is secured at ESS.
External collaboration partners will do the major part of the design update work and a large part of the construction. They are operating with a collaboration guided by a collaboration agreement and with individual contracts for each collaborator with significant work at ESS.
