  We study the feasibility of using a multi-Optical Transition Radiation (mOTR) system for fast transverse emittance reconstruction and x-y coupling correction in the Ring to Main Linac (RTML) of the future linear colliders: ILC and CLIC. OTR monitors are mature and reliable diagnostic tools that could be very suitable for the setup and tuning of the machine in single-bunch mode. Here we study the requirements for a mOTR system adapted to the optical conditions and beam parameters of the RTML of both the ILC and CLIC.

  A design study for a long baseline neutrino oscillation experiment (LBNO) with a new conventional neutrino beamline facility (CN2PY) at CERN was initiated in September 2011, supported by EU/FP7 funds. The beam will be aimed at a next generation deep-underground neutrino observatory located at the Pyhasalmi (Finland) mine at a distance of 2300 km. In an initial phase the CN2PY facility will use a 400 GeV beam extracted from SPS up to a maximum power of 750 kW, and in a second phase a 2 MW beam of about 50 GeV produced by a new High-Power Proton Synchrotron accelerator using the LP-SPL as injector also under design. The paper will focus on the design challenges of this MW-class facility and on the optimization studies of the secondary beam elements (target and horns) to produce a neutrino beam spectrum that matches best the experimental requirements for neutrino flavor oscillations and CP-violation tests. The challenges and bottlenecks in the existing CERN accelerator complex to produce the high-intensity beams foreseen for this facility at the initial phase are discussed.

  Design studies have been initiated at CERN, exploring the prospects of future high-power proton beams for producing neutrinos, within the LAGUNA-LBNO project. These studies include the design of a 2 MW high-power proton synchrotron (HP-PS) using the LP-SPL as injector. This paper resumes the design options under study in order to reach this high power, and their implications regarding layout, magnet technology beam loss control and RF considerations. Optics optimization studies are also presented including beam transfer and collimation considerations.

  A multi-Optical Transition Radiation (mOTR) system made of four stations is being used routinely since September 2011 for transverse beam size measurement and emittance reconstruction in the extraction line of ATF2, providing diagnostic support during the ATF2 tuning operation. Furthermore it is also an excellent tool for fast transverse coupling correction. Due to the compactness of the current design the system has an influence in the increase of the transverse emittance due to wakefield effects when a simultaneous measurement is made. To avoid this effect a new target holder and a new optics has been designed and implemented. In this paper we describe the present status of the ATF2 mOTR system, showing recent performance results, and hardware design improvements.
