The Large Hadron Collider of CERN and the roadmap toward higher performance / Rossi, L (CERN)
The Large Hadron Collider is exploring the new frontier of particle physics. It is the largest and most ambitious scientific instrument ever built and 100 years after the Rutherford experiment it continues that tradition of “smashing atoms” to unveil the secret of the infinitely small. [...]

High Power Molten Targets for Radioactive Ion Beam Production: from Particle Physics to Medical Applications / De Melo Mendonca, T M (CERN)
Megawatt-class molten targets, combining high material densities and good heat transfer properties are being considered for neutron spallation sources, neutrino physics facilities and radioactive ion beam production. For this last category of facilities, in order to cope with the limitation of long diffusion times affecting the extraction of short-lived isotopes, a lead-bismuth eutectic (LBE) target loop equipped with a diffusion chamber has been proposed and tested offline during the EURISOL design study. [...]

The AWAKE Experimental Facility at CERN / Gschwendtner, E (CERN) ; Bohl, T (CERN) ; Bracco, C (CERN) ; Butterworth, A (CERN) ; Cipiccia, S (CERN) ; Doebert, S (CERN) ; Fedosseev, V (CERN) ; Feldbaumer, E (CERN) ; Hessler, C (CERN) ; Hofle, W (CERN) et al.
AWAKE, an Advanced Wakefield Experiment is launched at CERN to verify the proton driven plasma wakefield acceleration concept. Proton bunches at 400 GeV/c will be extracted from the CERN SPS and sent along a 750 m long proton line to a plasma cell, a Rubidium vapour source, where the proton beam drives wakefields reaching accelerating gradients of several gigavolts per meter.
