Testing of main accelerator systems of laser driven AREAL linear accelerator successfully completed.
Yerevan. Testing of the main accelerator systems of the laser driven AREAL linear accelerator have been successfully
completed in accordance with the scientific and technical requirements of the project.
"The works entered the final stage of accelerator startup for the first beam of electrons," Chairman of the State Committee of
Science Prof. Samvel Haroutiunyan told reporters, Wednesday. Construction of AREAL accelerator was launched last year as part of the
CANDLE project (Center for the Advancement of Natural Discoveries using Light Emission). The beam of electrons will be applied in
the fields of physics, biotechnologies, chemistry and material's study. Laboratories of high- frequencies, optics, ultravacuum and
diagnostics equipment will be launched under the project.
AREAL (Advanced Research Electron Accelerator Laboratory) is the laser driven RF gun based on 20 MeV electron linear
accelerator project aiming to produce small emittance ultra-short electron beam pulses for advanced experimental study in the fields of
novel accelerator concepts, new coherent radiation sources and dynamics of atomic and molecular processes.
Haroutiunyan said AREAL has no analogues in the region. The second important stage of CANDLE is construction of a 3 GeV
synchrotron light facility. International experts say it will occupy 15-16 ha and will cost 60 million EUR. The Government's financing
will total 25%.
