The first beams are circulating in the SuperKEKB accelerator

On 2 march 2016, electron and positron beams were injected and stably circulated for the first time in the rings of the SuperKEKB accelerator at the KEK laboratory in Tsukuba, Japan. The important milestone, involving the creation of a high luminosity machine, is based on a beam collision scheme developed at the Frascati Laboratories for the Dafne accelerator.

A new generation of neutrino beams: ERC awards A. Longhin of INFN Frascati

With a 2 million EUR funding for a duration of 5 years the European Research Council (ERC) has awarded the ENUBET project (Enhanced NeUtrino Beams from kaon Tagging). The Principal Investigator is Andrea Longhin, a researcher working at the Frascati INFN National Laboratories. Longhin is among the 302 researchers awarded at an international level this year (with 585 MEUR in total) with the so-called “Consolidator Grants” of the ERC(*). This funding is meant, on a competitive basis, to offer researchers an extraordinary opportunity to make innovative and excellent research programs come to life.
