Timelapse of the ALPHA-g addition to the ALPHA Experiment


30 Sep 2019

In 2018 the ALPHA Experiment was expanded with the addition of ALPHA-g. To deliver antiparticles to both ALPHA-g and ALPHA 2 (Spectroscopy trap) a beamline to transport both antiprotons and positrons was also installed. The timelapse videos below show the massive changes, from installation of the beamline, to the addition of new equipment platforms (in stainless steel(!)) and the ALPHA-g main solenoid and cryostat as well as control systems etc.
