HiRadMat: A facility beyond the realms of materials testing / Harden, Fiona (CERN) ; Bouvard, Aymeric (CERN) ; Charitonidis, Nikolaos (CERN) ; Kadi, Yacine (CERN) /HiRadMat experiments and facility support teams
The ever-expanding requirements of high-power targets and accelerator equipment has highlighted the need for facilities capable of accommodating experiments with a diverse range of objectives. HiRadMat, a High Radiation to Materials testing facility at CERN has, throughout operation, established itself as a global user facility capable of going beyond its initial design goals. [...]

For many decades the CERN North Area facility at the Super Proton Synchrotron (SPS) has delivered secondary beams to various fixed target experiments and test beams. In 2018, two new tertiary extensions of the existing beam lines, designated “H2-VLE” and “H4-VLE”, have been constructed and successfully commissioned. [...]

The "Physics Beyond Colliders" projects for the CERN M2 beam / Banerjee, Dipanwita (CERN ; Illinois U., Urbana (main)) ; Bernhard, Johannes (CERN) ; Brugger, Markus (CERN) ; Charitonidis, Nikolaos (CERN) ; Cholak, Serhii (Taras Shevchenko U.) ; D'Alessandro, Gian Luigi (Royal Holloway, U. of London) ; Gatignon, Laurent (CERN) ; Gerbershagen, Alexander (CERN) ; Montbarbon, Eva (CERN) ; Rae, Bastien (CERN) et al.
Physics Beyond Colliders is an exploratory study aimed at exploiting the full scientific potential of CERN’s accelerator complex up to 2040 and its scientific infrastructure through projects complementary to the existing and possible future colliders. Within the Conventional Beam Working Group (CBWG), several projects for the M2 beam line in the CERN North Area were proposed, such as a successor for the COMPASS experiment, a muon programme for NA64 dark sector physics, and the MuonE proposal aiming at investigating the hadronic contribution to the vacuum polarisation.

The K12 beamline for the KLEVER experiment / Van Dijk, Maarten (CERN) ; Banerjee, Dipanwita (CERN) ; Bernhard, Johannes (CERN) ; Brugger, Markus (CERN) ; Charitonidis, Nikolaos (CERN) ; D'Alessandro, Gian Luigi (CERN) ; Doble, Niels (CERN) ; Gatignon, Laurent (CERN) ; Gerbershagen, Alexander (CERN) ; Montbarbon, Eva (CERN) et al.
The KLEVER experiment is proposed to run in the CERN ECN3 underground cavern from 2026 onward. The goal of the experiment is to measure ${\rm{BR}}(K_L \rightarrow \pi^0v\bar{v})$, which could yield information about potential new physics, by itself and in combination with the measurement of ${\rm{BR}}(K^+ \rightarrow \pi^+v\bar{v})$ of NA62.

Beam impact experiment of 440 GeV/p protons on superconducting wires and tapes in a cryogenic environment / Will, Andreas (KIT, Karlsruhe ; CERN) ; Bastian, Yan (CERN) ; Bernhard, Axel (KIT, Karlsruhe) ; Bonura, Marco (U. Geneva (main)) ; Bordini, Bernardo (CERN) ; Bortot, Lorenzo (CERN) ; Favre, Mathieu (CERN) ; Lindstrom, Bjorn (CERN) ; Mentink, Matthijs (CERN) ; Monteuuis, Arnaud (CERN) et al.
The superconducting magnets used in high energy particle accelerators such as CERN’s LHC can be impacted by the circulating beam in case of specific failure cases. This leads to interaction of the beam particles with the magnet components, like the superconducting coils, directly or via secondary particle showers. [...]

The Large Hadron Collider forward (LHCf) experiment was motivated to understand the hadronic interaction processes relevant to cosmic-ray air shower development. We have developed radiation-hard detectors with the use of Gd$_2$SiO$_5$ (GSO) scintillators for proton-proton $\sqrt{s} = 13$ TeV collisions. [...]

A new detector exploiting the technology of Gas Electron Multipliers is under construction to replace the innermost drift chamber of BESIII experiment, since its efficiency is compromised owing the high luminosity of Beijing Electron Positron Collider. The new inner tracker with a cylindrical shape will deploy several new features. [...]

CaloCube: a new homogenous calorimeter with high-granularity for precise measurements of high-energy cosmic rays in space / Bigongiari, Gabriele (INFN, Pisa) /Calocube
The direct observation of high-energy cosmic rays, up to the PeV region, will depend on highly performing calorimeters, and the physics performance will be primarily determined by their acceptance and energy resolution.Thus, it is fundamental to optimize their geometrical design, granularity, and absorption depth, with respect to the total mass of the apparatus, probably the most important constraints for a space mission. Furthermore, a calorimeter based space experiment can provide not only flux measurements but also energy spectra and particle identification to overcome some of the limitations of ground-based experiments.
