BESSY VSR Project: design status and project challenges


  • Dr. Pierre SCHNIZER

Primary authors


Complementary to many other upgrade programs, BESSY VSR strives to provide a train of ultra-short bunches while maintaining a large average beam current and thus high brilliance to the users. This upgrade program requires installing a set of superconducting cavities into the machine next to improvements and refurbishments in the existing accelerator chain.

In this presentation we present the current project status, describe the different preparation steps and tests currently being executed next to a summary of the challenges to tackle.
