Description
Fastest and most intense particle beams in Darmstadt:
Nuclear Physics at the S-DALINAC*

The superconducting Darmstadt linear electron accelerator (S-DALINAC) provides continuous-wave (cw) electron beams with energies up to 130 MeV (γ = 250) and intensities up to 20 μA (1014 particles/sec). It is operated by the Institut für Kernphysik of the Technische Universität Darmstadt and serves experiments on nuclear structure and nuclear astrophysics as well as developments in accelerator science. The presentation will address highlights of recent scientific achievements, e.g. [1-3], the S-DALINAC’s recent upgrade to Germany’s first Energy-Recovery LINAC (ERL) [4], and examples of current on-going experiments.
