ELI Beamlines call: user-assisted commissioning of the ELIMAIA Ion Beam Transport section at high repetition-rate

Issue Date 04.10.2022
Closing Date 05.11.2022
Status closed

The ELI Beamlines user facility invites the scientific community to submit proposals for commissioning the ELIMAIA (ELI Multidisciplinary Applications of laser-Ion Acceleration) Ion Beam Transport section in its E4 Experimental Hall that will offer future open-access experiments on laser-plasma ion acceleration and applications in radiobiology, chemistry, material science, archaeology, nuclear physics, etc. Beforehand, the ELI-Beamlines team will carry out commissioning experiments of the ELIMAIA Ion Accelerator section with the main goal of demonstrating a stable generation of proton beams with moderate performances at high repetition-rate.

The aim of the call is to:

  • Perform user-assisted commissioning experiments, using the capabilities already in operation at the Ion Accelerator section of the ELIMAIA beamline in the E4 experimental hall.
  • Basic commissioning the Ion Beam Transport (ELIMED) section of the ELIMAIA facility with enhanced performances of the accelerated proton beam at high repetition-rate.
  • Increase the future value of experimental capabilities of the ELIMAIA-ELIMED beamline for the user community by ensuring that the final development and commissioning steps are completed in collaboration with leading international experts.
  • Train ELI Beamlines scientific staff, user office personnel, and support teams together with experienced users in the interactions necessary for efficient user operations.
