20MeV/A alpha beams accelerated for the first time through the SPIRAL2 LINAC

Saturday July 17, 2021

The SPIRAL2 LINAC achieved another major milestone by accelerating to the design energy of 20MeV/A a 200µA 4He beam with a duty cycle of  1ms/s. This validates the acceleration of A/Q=2 particles through the LINAC.
