TI - Commissioning of the ESS Front End J2 - Proc. of HB2021, Batavia, IL, USA, 04-08 October 2021 CY - Batavia, IL, USA T2 - ICFA ABDW on High-Intensity and High-Brightness Hadron Beams T3 - 64 LA - english AB - The European Spallation Source, currently under construction in Lund, Sweden, will be the brightest spallation neutron source in the world, when the proton linac driver achieves the design power of 5 MW at 2 GeV beam energy. Such a high power requires production, efficient acceleration, and transport of a high current proton beam with minimal loss. This implies in a challenging design and beam commissioning of this machine. The linac features a long pulse length of 2.86 ms at a relatively low repetition late of 14 Hz. The ESS ion source and low energy beam transport are in-kind contributions from INFN-LNS. Beam commissioning of this section started in September 2018 and continued until early July in 2019. This article presents highlights from a campaign of beam characterizations and optimizations during this beam commissioning stage.
