|Accelerators, Cryogenics and Magnetism Department (SACM) : SACM develops and builds particle accelerators, cryogenic systems, and superconducting magnets for IRFU's scientific programs and for those of the CEA in general. It is organized to manage large-scale projects. These are conducted within the IRFU project organizational structure, in close collaboration with the Institute's other physics and technology departments, and in particular with the Systems Engineering Department (SIS). In 2009, 67 engineers and 50 technicians worked for SACM, together with five doctorate students, several visiting researchers, and more than fifteen students. The workforce is divided among four laboratories: Ø the ... More »|
Objectives The scientific exploitation of the LHC (Large Hadron Collider), planned to start operation in 2008 will be the higher priority in high energy physics for the next coming years. In the following step new large instruments will be required to reach a fine characterization ...
