Secondary beam lines at PSI

View of the PSI experimental hall with the secondary beam lines
PSI provides beam time for particle physics and other experiments. Its unique specialty is very high intensity pion and muon beams of momenta up to a few hundred MeV/c. These secondary beam lines (picture) are maintained jointly by the Laboratory for Particle Physics and the Division of Large Research Facilities.
Following Secondary Beam Lines are available for nuclear and particle physics experiments.
Area Target Momentum Range MeV/c Momentum Resolution % FHWM Particle Type max. π flux 1/s
πE1 E 10-500 0.26 Pions, Muons 1 x 1010
πE5 E 20-120 2 Pions, Muons 2 x 1010
πM1 M 100-500 0.1 Pions, Protons 4 x 108
