The Beam Line
The CLEAR facility is hosted by the CLEX experimental area at CERN - building 2010. The CLEAR Beam Line is built on the basis of CALIFES, previously used at CTF3 as Probe Beam injector for testing the CLIC Two Beam Acceleration concept.
On the spectrometer at the end of the CALIFES injector is placed the VESPER (see its official web page): a test stand for irradiation studies.
A technical drawing of the foreseen layout:
A basic DWG with the present (work still ongoing!) layout of the facility is also available here.
The beam parameters at the end of the linac are summarised in the following table:
|Beam parameter (end of linac)||Value range|
|Energy||130 - 220 MeV (down to 60 MeV with upgrade)|
|Bunch charge||0.01 - 0.5 nC|
|Normalized emittances||3 um for 0.05 nC per bunch
20 um for 0.4 nC per bunch (in both planes)
|Bunch length||~500 um -1.2 mm|
|Relative energy spread||< 0.2 % rms (< 1 MeV FWHM)|
|Repetition rate||1 - 5 Hz (25 Hz with upgrade)|
|Number of micro-bunches in train||1 and more than 100|
|Micro-bunch spacing||1.5 GHz|
