Linac 4: a new injector for the CERN


Three IN2P3 laboratories have taken part in the construction of LINAC 4, the new CERN injector. This equipment was inaugurated in May and is the latest to have been developed since the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). Once it enters into service in 2020, it will become the new primary link in the chain of CERN accelerators. It will supply proton beams for many experiments and will increase the LHC’s luminosity.
