LAL-LURE complex accelerator inaugurated as EPS Historic Site on 13 September 2013

Posted By Administration, 12 September 2013
The complex and its associated area have been in use for more than four decades and have been marked by a number of milestones, among which:
- the first electron-positron collisions in the AdA collider (INFN Frascati);
- the pioneering use of synchrotron light in physics, chemistry and biology;
- one of the first free-electron lasers in the world.
The "Laboratoire de l’Accélérateur Linéaire” (LAL, CNRS-IN2P3 and Université Paris Sud) was born in 1956 primarily to host a state-of-the-art linear accelerator aiming at providing electron and positron beams of 1 GeV or more with high intensities. The machine operations started in the early 1960’s and lasted until its final shutdown in 2004. It is now the main piece of a "Museum about Light and Matter”. It is recognized as a ‘historic monument’ in France, visited by more than 1,000 people a year.
A detailed article will soon be published in the EPS newletter e-EPS.
