Intrabeam scattering dilutes the emittance of low energy, low emittance rings. Because CesrTA can be operated at low energies with low transverse emittances and high bunch intensity, it is an ideal laboratory for the study of IBS effects. Furthermore, CesrTA is instrumented for accurate beam size measurements in all three dimensions, providing the possibility of a complete determination of the intensity dependence of emittances. Models based on classical IBS theories and multi-particle simulations are used to estimate the effect of IBS at CesrTA at different beam emittances, intensities and energies. The first measurements from machine studies at CesrTA are presented.
