The new proposal, ESSnuSB+, submitted to the EU last April, has been approved this July.
Objectives and Ambitions of the new project:
The key objective of the H2020 ESSνSB Design Study was to demonstrate the feasibility of using the European Spallation Source proton linac to produce the world’s most intense neutrino beam concurrently with the 5 MW proton beam that will be used for the production of spallation neutrons. After the production of all deliverables and the publication of the ESSνSB CDR, this is now accomplished. The present Design Study is proposed to pave the way of ESSνSB by introducing complementary studies and enlarging its scope by introducing investigations of synergetic projects. The ESSνSB+ strategic objectives are:
ESSnuSB meeting at ESS Lund (Sweden), 22-23 March 2022
- On the 18th of March 2022, a White paper “contribution to Snowmass 2021” authored by the ESSnuSB Collaboration and entitled: “The European Spallation Source Neutrino Superbeam” was published on arXiv. The full article is available here.
- On the 23rd of June 2021, an article written by Tord Ekelöf, scientific leader of ESS Neutrino Super Beam and Colin Carlile, former Director General of the ESS was published in the journal. The full article entitled: “A neutrino detector can solve the mysteries of physics – Now action is required” is accessible here.
- On the 27 July 2021, the article “Updated physics performance of the ESSnuSB experiment” was published on ArXiv. The full article is available here.
- The Gazette#31 issued the 28th of February 2022 is available here.
