Focus Point on Small and Medium Particle Accelerator Facilities in Europe

Small and Medium Particle Accelerator Facilities (SMPAF) play a very important role in the landscape of European research. They can accelerate a variety of atomic nuclei, at energies in the MeV range, and have a cross-disciplinary application field. In most cases, they are open to external users, so a proper knowledge by the community of the...

Going to the heaviest: First acceleration of Lead beams at CMAM

Going to the heaviest: First acceleration of Lead beams at CMAM

The aim was to optimize the machine to the maximum and check whether we were able to characterize the isotopic composition of a target used in an experiment at ISOLDE (CERN) for studies of the scattering of halo nuclei. At CMAM we prepared two sputtering targets one of enriched 208Pb (Z=82) (97.85% of 208Pb)mixed with silver and the other with...
