Stage A) Pilot Beams

main aim:
  • drive the beam expeditiously through the BeamProductionChain (BPC): from the sources, through the synchrotrons, beam transfers, up to the experimental targets/storage rings
  • check basic 'accelerator mechanics': threading, injection, capture, cool, convert, acceleration/decelerate, stripping & extraction
  • identify beam-related limitations: polarities, RF, beam instrumentation, machine alignment, effective physical machine aperture, ...
This stage is intended to be done always with 'safe' resp. low-intensity/brightness beam, and initially preferably with 'easily available' ions (e.g. U28+, Ar) that are accelerated with relatively simpler optics, beam dynamics, and later with protons to test transition crossing etc.

This stage is further subdivided into phases:
