Technology Department

Beam Transfer Physics (BTP)

The BTP Section is responsible for studies, conception, design and commissioning of injection and extraction systems in the accelerator complex, and of beam transfer lines between accelerators and primary beam lines up to targets. The activity comprises beam physics of the underlying processes, optics design, matching, trajectories, apertures, protection devices, equipment specifications, technical coordination, hardware and beam commissioning and performance follow-up, studies of possible future upgrades and projects. Close collaboration with BE/ABP and BE/OP, and with machine protection and collimation projects.
