Description

Following the successful initial phase of the Gamma Factory (GF)
R&D studies—showing that atomic beams can be efficiently produced
and accelerated in the CERN rings up to the top LHC energy—the GF
collaboration proposes, as the next R&D phase, a Proof-of-Principle (PoP)
experiment to study collisions of the laser photons with
partially stripped ions at the SPS. Following the presentation
of the PoP experiment proposal, I shall concentrate on one of
its multiple aspects: a proof of a new, ultra-fast beam
cooling technique allowing to reduce the transverse emittance
of the SPS ion beam. The positive outcome of the PoP experiment
could pave the road to a high-luminosity version of the LHC
with colliding isoscalar beams. Such beams are superior with
respect to proton beams in multiple aspects of the LHC research
programme in particular for the EW and BSM studies.
