 CERN needs for future accelerators in high energy physics / Holzer, B J (CERN) Several new accelerator projects are being studied at CERN in a broad energy range from atomic to Tera scale level. The beam energy as well as the beam quality requirements raise the need for new future acceleration concepts to achieve more efficient accelerating structures and / or more compact devices.

 A Gas Target Internal to the LHC for the Study of pp Single-Spin Asymmetries and Heavy Ion Collisions / Barschel, Colin (CERN) ; Lenisa, Paolo (Ferrara U. ; INFN, Ferrara) ; Nass, Alexander (Julich, Forschungszentrum) ; Steffens, Erhard (Erlangen - Nuremberg U.) We discuss the application of an open storage cell as gas target for a proposed LHC fixed-target experiment AFTER@LHC. The target provides a high areal density at minimum gas input, which may be polarized ^1H, ^2H, or ^3He gas or heavy inert gases in a wide mass range. [...] 2015 - 6 p. - Published in : Adv.

 Inductive adders for replacing thyratron based modulators at CERN / Barnes, M J (CERN) ; Ducimetiere, L (CERN) ; Holma, J (CERN) ; Kramer, T (CERN) ; Fowler, A (CERN) Line-type modulators, for example pulse forming lines and pulse forming networks, which use thyratron switches, are currently used in many pulse power systems at CERN. Solid-state modulators implemented with inductive adder technology could replace thyratron based designs in many applications and potentially improve dynamic range, maintainability and reliability of the systems.

 Measurements on prototype inductive adders with extreme flat-top output pulses for CLIC damping ring extraction kickers / Holma, Janne (CERN) ; Barnes, Michael J (CERN) The specifications of the extraction kicker systems for the damping rings of the Compact Linear Collider call for 160 ns duration flat-top pulses of ±12.5 kV, 250 A, with combined ripple and droop of ±0.02 %. Pulse waveforms of two 3.5 kV prototype inductive adders have demonstrated ±0.05 % relative flat-top stability.. 2015 - 8 p. - Published in : 10.1109/EPE.2015.7309138 In : 17th European Conference on Power Electronics and Applications, Geneva, Switzerland, 8-10 Sep 2015, pp.7309138

 The Second Beam-Line and Experimental Area at n_TOF: A New Opportunity for Challenging Neutron Measurements at CERN / Colonna, Nicola (INFN, Bari) ; Gunsing, Frank (Saclay) ; Chiaveri, Enrico (CERN) Since 2001, a wealth of neutron capture and neutron-induced fission reactions has been measured at n_TOF, providing an important contribution to a wide variety of research fields. The experimental activity is driven mostly by two motivations: on the one hand, capture reactions are studied with the aim of improving current models of stellar nucleosynthesis of heavy elements.
