“To explore the physics & technology potential of new beamlines in the BNL hadron complex”

The injector chain for the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider has a long history of providing hadron beams for a diverse set of goals. For example, the Booster currently provides heavy ions at energies from 0.1 to 1.0 GeV/u, and protons at 0.1 to 2.5 GeV, for a NASA radio-biological beamline, while the Linac provides 200 MeV protons for isotope production and for neutron irradiation damage studies. More could be done in the future, and so BNL is holding a workshop, to:
  1. Identify and/or begin to construct user communities
  2. Establish approximate parameters for potential new hadron beam lines species, energy, intensity, time structure, topology, ....
Six working groups will meet in serial sessions : each with two conveners
  1. Muon spin, MuSR : Wolfram Fischer (BNL), Yasumoto [Tomo] Uemura (Columbia)
  2. Particle test beamline : Eric Mannel (PHENIX), Flemming Videbaek (STAR)
  3. Neutron time-of-flight : Mei Bai (BNL), Yaron Danon (RPI)
  4. Neutron anti-neutron development : Mary Bishai (BNL), Gustaaf Brooijmans (Columbia)
  5. ADSR/spallation target R&D : Francois Meot (BNL), Nick Simos (BNL)
  6. Radiobiology beamline 2 : David Brenner (Columbia), Adam Rusek (BNL)
We also hope and expect to identify additional transformative areas.

Registration is open and free.

Guest Registration is needed for entry into Brookhaven National Laboratory.  Please see the menu item "Entry into BNL (Guest Registration)."
