This report sums up in two volumes the first 50 years of operation of the CERN Proton Synchrotron. After an introduction on the genesis of the machine, and a description of its magnet and powering systems, the first volume focuses on some of the many innovations in accelerator physics and instrumentation that it has pioneered, such as transition crossing, RF gymnastics, extractions, phase space tomography, or transverse emittance measurement by wire scanners. The second volume describes the… Expand
Influence of the Alignment of the Main Magnets on Resonances in the CERN Proton Synchrotron
During the Long Shutdown 1 seven out of the one hundred combined function main magnets were removed from the tunnel to conduct maintenance. After reinstallation, the entirety of the main magnets wasExpand
Comprehensive Study for an Optimized Redesign of the CERN's Antiproton Decelerator Target
The Antiproton Decelerator Target (AD-Target) is a unique device responsible for the production of antiprotons at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN). During operation, intense 26Expand
The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) in Geneva, Switzerland, is capable of accelerating beams of protons (pp) and heavy-ions (Pb+Pb) up to nearlyExpand
Availability and critical systems of the Future Circular Electron–Positron Collider
Abstract The Future Circular Electron–Positron Collider (FCC-ee) is planned to be the world’s largest particle collider and a precision instrument to study the heaviest known particles. AchievingExpand
arXiv : Drift Chamber Track Reconstruction for the P349 Antiproton Experiment
The aim of this thesis was to perform the drift chamber calibration and charged particles 3d track reconstruction for the P349 antiproton polarization experiment. A dedicated procedures wereExpand
Search for Dileptonic ttH(H->bb) with the ATLAS Detector
A search for the Higgs boson produced in association with a pair of top quarks (ttH) is presented and the result does not provide significant evidence for the presence of ttH and a 95% confidence limit was set on the production. Expand

First operating experience with the CERN decelerating RFQ for antiprotons
The RFQD decelerates antiprotons from a momentum of 100 MeV/c (kinetic energy 5.31 MeV) down to a kinetic energy variable between /spl sim/10 keV and 120 keV A novel feature is the implementation ofExpand
Producing Massive Neutral Intermediate Vector Bosons with Existing Accelerators
We outline a scheme of searching for the massive weak boson (M = 50 – 200 GeV/c2). An antiproton source is added either to the Fermilab or the CERN SPS machines to transform a conventional 400 GeVExpand
