Accelerator Beam Transfer group (ABT)

The ABT group is in charge of the design, development, construction, installation, exploitation and maintenance of injection and extraction related equipment:

  • fast pulsed magnets with associated high voltage pulse generators and transmission lines;
  • electrostatic and magnetic septa, including high voltage power supplies for electrostatic septa;
  • protection devices;
  • associated equipment-level control systems and software.

The group also conceives, studies and designs injection and extraction processes and systems in the accelerator complex, and beam transfer lines between accelerators and up to targets. It contributes to operational follow-up of beam transfer systems, and is in charge of the commissioning of the LHC transfer lines, injection and beam dumping systems together with their potential upgrades.
