Another achievement for ESS DTL

The maximum current proton beam was accelerated by DTL 1 for its entire length (20 m).

The goal of this beam commissioning phase was to send a probe to the Faraday Cup of the Linac 1 Drift Tube. The ESS team achieved this in early June, and on 13 July afternoon they managed to transport a beam of maximum current through the DTL. All systems connected to the accelerator work in harmony, exceeding expectations.
