​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Experiments in HiRadMat

The HiRadMat experimental area is located at the TNC tunnel (ex. WANF facility target & secondary beam tunnel) in the SPS-BA7 area. The facility offers the possibility of three test stands receiving beam at the same time. Installation of the test material is done remotely using specialy designed platforms. Personel access to the experimental area is restricted due to the radiation environment. Cool-down areas are also availabe nearby where the material can be moved after the end of the beam exposure.
