  We will report on the status of the antiproton production target for the FAIR facility. A Ni target will be bombarded by a pulsed beam of 29 GeV protons with an intensity of 2.5·1013 ppp and a repetition rate of 0.2 Hz. Directly after the target the antiprotons will be focussed by a magnetic horn. In the proceeding magnetic separator antiprotons with an energy of 3 GeV (± 3%) will be selected and transported to the antiproton collector ring. The planned setup of the target area, including radiation protection issues, will be presented,

  The full physics program of a future Large Hadron electron Collider (LHeC) requires both pe+ and pe- collisions. For a pulsed 140-GeV or an ERL-based 60-GeV Linac-Ring LHeC this implies a challenging rate of, respectively, about 1.8·1015 or 4.4·1016 e+/s at the collision point, which is about 300 or 7000 times the past SLC rate. We consider providing this e+ rate through a combination of measures: (1) Reducing the required production rate from the e+ target through colliding e+ (and the LHC protons) several times before deceleration, by reusing the e+ over several acceleration/deceleration cycles, and by cooling them, e.g., with a compact tri-ring scheme or a conventional damping ring in the SPS tunnel. (2) Using an advanced target, e.g., W-granules, rotating wheel, sliced-rod converter, or liquid metal jet, for converting gamma rays to e+. (3) Selecting the most powerful of several proposed gamma sources, namely Compton ERL, Compton storage ring, coherent pair production in a strong laser, or high-field undulator radiation from the high-energy lepton beam. We describe the various concepts, present example parameters, estimate the electrical power required, and mention open questions.
