ARIEL: Switching on the (RF) Power

12 September 2014

With the mass efforts building in the Electron Hall this year, many components of the e-linac are in position and ready for operation. Klystron One and Klystron Two, the high-power continuous wave klystrons, are ready to power the cryomodules of the e-linac.

Success: ARIEL E-Linac Accelerates First Beam

28 July 2014

In the year since the ARIEL building was constructed, teams across the lab have intensified efforts towards the commissioning of ARIEL’s e-linac. On July 18, the e-linac completed the first acceleration of beam through the e-linac superconducting injector cryomodule to the 10 MeV beam dump.
