The H8 beam lines hosts the following experimental zones:
|PPE 138 (previously hosting NA45) layout (.gif,
Up to this zone the beam line is
completely shielded and high intensity beams can be provided.
|PPE 158 (also called H8A) layout|
Since the year 2003, beams with a momentum from 350 GeV/c down to 1 GeV/c can
be provided here.
|PPE 168 (also called H8B) layout|
This area is mainly intended for the use of muon beams. Very low intensity
beams of hadrons can be provided as well.
Currently the following experiments are hosted in theses areas. Presently the
H8 beam line is used for tests of the LHC experiment ATLAS:
|PPE 138: Currently only used by ATLAS Pixel for high intensity tests,
previously NA49 (suspended) and heavy ion runs|
|PPE 158: ATLAS SCT, TRT, Liquid Argon and TileCal (combined run)|
|PPE 168: ATLAS muon|
