VEPP-2000 running in Round Beam mode

During summer shutdown further modifications of BEP were done. Two modern pickups were installed. Two copper mirrors for synchrotron radiation based beam diagnostics were changed due to insufficient quality. The new SR outlet for future material science experiments was equiped with movable water cooled absorber. At the end of the K-500 tunnel the Faraday cup was installed for absolute beam charge measurements.

Since the beginning of the year we were working hardly to bring the beam from booster synchrotron BEP to VEPP-2000 storage ring. Transportation channels with new dipoles capable to work @ 1 GeV were assembled and aligned precisely. The beam step-by-step moved through the beamline controled @ two types of BPMs.

First beam @ BEP!

Great news! First electron beam captured into upgraded booster BEP. Synchrotron light of tiny beam is visible by CCD or naked eye.
