                               "ESS towards First Neutron Production"


                                                Prof. Håkan Danared

                                                 (European Spallation Source in Lund)




The European Spallation Source, ESS, in Lund is expected to have first

beam on target and thereby first neutron production in early summer 2025.

The proton accelerator has already had nominal beam current to 74 MeV in

the normal-conducting part of the linac, and installation of the

superconducting linac is progressing rapidly. Installation of the

spallation target is similarly making rapid progress, and the 15 neutron

instruments will be commissioned in three tranches until start of user

operation in 2027. The presentation will give an introduction to ESS and

its science goals, review the status of installation and commissioning

activities and give an outlook towards start of user operation and beyond.


About the Speaker:


Håkan Danared received his PhD from KTH in atomic physics and then joined

the Research Institute of Physics, later the Manne Siegbahn Institute and

the Manne Siegbahn Laboratory at SU for the construction and then

operation of the CRYRING facility. He was the director of MSL from 2005 to

2010, when he moved to the European Spallation Source in Lund. He is

currently the acting head of the ESS Accelerator Division.
