Accelerators, Cryogenics and Magnetism Division (DACM)

 

The mission of the division of accelerators, cryogenics and magnetism is to develop and produce particle accelerators, ion sources, accelerator cavities, cryogenic systems and superconducting magnets for Irfu's scientific programs. For this, the DACM has extensive assembly, integration and testing facilities, ranging from winding and magnet assembly halls, to large clean rooms for accelerator systems and small test stations to characterize materials, to very large stations capable of testing complete assemblies.
Thanks to its advanced skills, the DACM ensures the prime contracting of accelerators or parts of accelerators such as Iphi, the design and prime contracting of accelerator magnets and magnets integrated into detection devices as well as associated cryogenic devices. Drawing on its skills, the DACM applies its technologies to other research fields such as energy with the JT-60SA tokamak or life sciences with the Iseult project magnet.
In order to ensure the conduct of large-scale projects, the DACM must develop the corresponding testing resources. Thus, it also conducts a strong R&D program that prepares the future of technologies to provide the necessary tools for advances in basic and applied research. It also designs and develops platforms and test stations as well as the production of cryogenic fluids used at Irfu.

DACM - past and futur projects : In the last three years, DACM has scored a number of successes: the injectors of SPIRAL2 and IFMIF have been tested in an operational situation in their bunkers inside the Synergium and have achieved their nominal performance. The 51 tons of superconducting material necessary for the ISEULT project were produced and 170 double pancakes were wound with the required accuracy. The development of innovative antennas for medical imaging has continued with success.

DACM - the missions : The expertise of the Department has also been deployed in support of work in associated fields including energy (materials studies for thermonuclear fusion as part of the IFMIF project, qualification of the coils of the Japanese JT-60SA Tokamak), life sciences (the ISEULT ultra high field magnetic resonance imager for NEUROSPIN) and light sources (SOLEIL and XFEL). DACM also provides management services for major large scale projects and develops the associated test systems.

DACM - the organisation of the division : DACM is division of the Institute of Research into the Fundamental Laws of the Universe (IRFU), of the CEA Physical Sciences Division (DSM). It is located on the Saclay center in the premises of the former National Laboratory Saturne, LNS, and the former Department of Instrumental Techniques of Elementary Particles, the STIPE. These premises have been renovated and gathered in a large platform called "Synergium" which occupies a total floor area of 25,000 m2.
