This report presents a summary of the Achromatic Telescopic Squeezing (ATS) scheme related activities which took place in 2016, where a new generation of ATS pre-squeezed and telescopic optics was successfully probed, namely: (i) down to a beta* of 10 cm with pilot bunches, and (ii) with more emphasis at intermediate beta* values of 40 cm or 33 cm where collisions were established with nominal bunches, the triplet aperture was measured and collimation measurements with pre-squeezed or moderately telescopic ATS optics were conducted..

Case study of a magnetic system for low-energy machines / Schoerling, Daniel (CERN)
The extra low-energy antiproton ring (ELENA) is a CERN particle decelerator with the purpose to deliver antiprotons at lowest energies aiming to enhance the study of antimatter. The hexagonal shaped ring with a circumference of about 30 m will decelerate antiprotons from momenta of 100 to 13.7 MeV/c. [...]
