CEA/IRFU has completed the final design of the LB650 cryomodule for the linear accelerator in the PIP-II (Proton Improvement Plan II) project, an essential enhancement to the Fermilab accelerator complex that will supply neutrinos to the DUNE experiment.
The PIP-II (Proton Improvement Plan-II) project is the first particle accelerator to be built in the United States with major in-kind contributions from international partners. CEA/IRFU provides its expertise in the field of superconducting radio-frequency cryomodules and associated technologies.

August 27, 2019, a key accelerator component from France was delivered to the European Spallation Source (ESS) in Lund, Sweden, as part of the French in-kind contributions to the next-generation research infrastructure. The Radio Frequency Quadrupole (RFQ) is the first accelerating structure in ESS’ linear accelerator and has been designed, developed and manufactured by the ESS French stakeholder CEA in its institute Irfu (Institute of Research into the Fundamental Laws of the Universe).

The faster, more powerful European XFEL free-electron laser[1] was inaugurated on September 1, 2017, near Hamburg, Germany. By producing ultra-bright, trillion-photon X-ray flashes at a frequency two hundred times greater than the best preexisting free-electron lasers (FELs), this next-generation European instrument will allow scientists to map the atomic relief of viruses, decipher the molecular composition of cells, create 3-D images of the nanoworld, and even film chemical reactions.

The European X-ray Free Electron Laser has reached one of its final major milestones. The cryomodules used to accelerate the electrons, supplied by IRFU, were installed on-site in Hamburg, Germany. A first electron beam was accelerated across the section of the first 17 cryomodules.
