Lyfe-cycle and reliability of particle accelerators

Dr. Samuel Meyroneinc, Institut CURIE


The “life” of a particle accelerator is made of several steps from early stages of expression of interest to dismantlement.


Beyond the classical periods study-fabricate-install-test-operate-maintain, we will look at the associated links customer/supplier and the surroundings fields, such as the building.


In a second part, the subject of “reliability” will be used to illustrate several mechanisms occurring during the life-cycle of an accelerator.
