Projects

To fully exploit the potential of the ELENA and USR research infrastructures, the AVA partners propose to carry out a closely connected R&D program in the following three work packages:


Facility Design and Optimization, addressing beam life time and stability in lowest energy storage rings, as well as beam cooling, deceleration and extraction through simulation and experimental studies, as well as innovative control systems;

 


Design, development and testing of novel Beam Diagnostics and establishment of a dedicated test stand, to fully determine the characteristics of an antiproton beam;

 

 


‌‌Design of novel low energy Antimatter Experiments through R&D into beyond state-of-the-art beam handling, storing and analysis techniques.

 

 

The following projects are being undertaken at partner institutions:

University of Liverpool

CERN

CIVIDEC

Cosylab

FOTON

FZJ

GSI

MPG

OEAW

Stahl-Electronics
