In-Air Experimental Station

Accelerator Building Blocks

How does It Work

When you're looking for a new experimental station to perform your challenging experiment, choosing a skilful and reliable partner can make all the difference. Every member of the Elettra project team has the direct hands-on experience required to help guide you through the demanding process of decision making, design and execution. This is achieved by:

  • Understanding your scientific needs.
  • Sharing with you the unique experience we have gained during the construction of several experimental stations as well as through our interactions with various beamtime users.
  • Fine-tuning the requirements for your experimental station.
  • Working closely with your team to design your experimental station.
  • Building and commissioning the experimental station.
  • Offering high levels of support from quali ed staff throughout the life cycle of your experiment.




ELI Beamlines HELL User Station

The First Ever Experimental Station Built for a Laser Plasma Accelerator
The HELL user station was developed for ELI Beamlines, which is based in the Czech Republic. It comprises experimental station support, an in-air box, motorization stages and the diagnostics instruments required for characterizing samples irradiated by electron beams.
The HELL station's conceptual design was de ned in close collaboration with the nal user, taking into account their particular requirements and needs, which was then followed by detailed technical speci cations which served as the basis for its nal design.
The entire box can either be used in a laboratory or plugged in at the beamline (DN 160 ange equipped with an adjustable iris for light control).
The whole system is mounted on a vibration damping bread board and contains the following:

  • a sample stage with four motorized axes (X, Y, Z, ω),
  • twosupportsforLanexscreens,with three manual movements (X, Z, θ) each,
  • two adaptable mirror systems for the best Lanex view, fro both inside and outside the box,
  • internal and external camera supports.

The design of the experimental station interior is extremely exible and allows for extra devices to be mounted.
