High current proton linacs

Dr. Sébastien Bousson, IPN Orsay


High power proton beams are required for a very large variety of applications in nuclear physics, particle physics, neutrons and material science, nuclear waste treatment…


Many facilities are under project or construction worldwide and are facing several challenges.


In this course, we will review the different applications of high power beams and the corresponding existing facilities or ongoing projects, then address the basic principles of these accelerators and finally present the main issues and challenges to deal with these very high power beams.
