The first cryostat for the superconducting cw-linear accelerator HELIAC (HElmholtz LInear ACcelerator) has been recently delivered to the HIM lab.


All cryogenic components, as RF-cavities and other optical elements, will be assembled to a so called accelerating (cold) string in the HIM clean room and later on integrated into the cryostat. The HELIAC is the central R&D project of the ACID1 section, which will provide high-intensity heavy ion beams of best quality in the future, especially for the heavy element experiments. Final transport of the completely assembled accelerator module to the GSI campus and first heavy ion beam tests are foreseen until mid of 2022.
