IOTA

From CERN Courier, Oct. 29, 2018: In late August, a beam of electrons successfully circulated for the first time through a new particle accelerator at Fermilab. The Integrable Optics Test Accelerator, a 40-meter-circumference storage ring, is one of only a handful of facilities worldwide dedicated to beam-physics studies.

Fermilab machinists and welders get a tour of the FAST/IOTA accelerator to see the results of all their hard work.

Our achievement at FAST is a testament to the strength of the laboratory’s SRF accelerator program and long-awaited proof of the feasibility of the SRF technology at its frontier.
