Description

The Gamma Factory (GF) initiative proposes to use partially stripped ion (PSI) beams as drivers of a new type of high intensity and high energy (1-400 MeV) photon source. As part of the ongoing Physics Beyond Collider studies, initial beam tests with PSI beams have been carried out in 2017 and 2018 at the SPS and LHC with partially stripped xenon and lead beams. This contribution discusses the results of these tests and the preparations for the next GF R&D step — the proof-of-principle experiment at the SPS to study collisions of PSI beams with the laser pulses.
