This workshop will focus on design and technical issues of high-power high-intensity linear accelerators specifically related to ADS applications, with the aim of defining the necessary R&D and finding synergies amongst different European institutions.
is a networking activity with the funded EUCARD2 European project on particle accelerators, addressing the applied areas of industry, healthcare, energy production and security. Amongst its objectives is to” determine the requirements for high power accelerator applications, in particular for Accelerator Driven Systems (ADS)”. More information is available on:
MAX is a FP7 EURATOM project which participates in addressing the issue of high-level long-lived radioactive waste transmutation by pursuing the development of the high‐power proton accelerator as specified by the MYRRHA Accelerator‐Driven System (ADS) demonstrator project in Belgium. Its main goal is to increase the level of confidence in the fact that the MYRRHA linac requirements can be fulfilled; this is mainly performed through studies and simulations on general design and reliability issues, together with developments and experiments on dedicated accelerator test sections.
