The Booster/ISOLDE section
for the operation of the PS Booster and
the On-Line Isotope Mass Separator ISOLDE.
The PS Booster is a synchrotron composed of four superimposed
rings. It delivers a variety of beams for the
downstream PS, SPS and LHC machines as well as high intensity
The section is also responsible for the specification and
of controls software. ISOLDE delivers stable and radioactive
changing user groups in the fields of nuclear and atomic
physics, life sciences and material science.
Responsibilities of the section
include target changes, setting up and delivery of stable and
beam on ISOLDE's two mass separators as well as maintenance and
hardware and controls software.
