Particle beam steering using atomic lattices

V.M. Biryukov (Institute for High Energy Physics Protvino, Russia)

28 settembre @ 15:00 - 16:00

Crystal lattice can trap and channel particle beams. In a bent crystal, the channelled particles follow the bend. This makes a basis for an elegant technique of beam steering by means of bent channelling lattices, experimentally demonstrated from 3 MeV to 6.5 TeV. The technique was developed at CERN, FNAL, IHEP, BNL, SLAC etc, and can lead to interesting applications from crystal undulators to medical micro-beams to crystal collimation at hadron and lepton colliders.
First we used the lattices of natural crystals, then graded composition lattices like SiGe/Si, next we’ll use the lattices built by nanotechnology. Recent years extended the use first in energy down to a few MeV and up to multi-TeV, then in particle choice from protons and nuclei to electrons (SLAC and Mainz). We review developments in the field and show outlook for the future.
