  A high brightness electron LINAC is being built in the Compton Gamma Source at the ELI Nuclear Physics facility in Romania. To achieve the design luminosity, a train of 32, 16 ns spaced, bunches with a nominal charge of 250 pC will collide with the laser beam in the interaction point. Electron beam spot size is measured with optical transition radiation profile monitors. In order to measure the beam properties along the train, the screens must sustain the thermal stress due to the energy deposited by the bunches; moreover the optical radiation detecting system must have the necessary accuracy and resolution. This paper deals with the analytical studies as well as numerical simulations to investigate the thermal behaviour of the screens impinged by the nominal bunch; the design and the performance of the optical detection line is discussed as well.

  The CNAO center has been conceived since the beginning with three treatment rooms and an 'experimental room' where research can be carried out without hindering the clinical activity. The room itself was built since the beginning, but the beam line was planned at a second moment in time to give priority to the treatments. The experimental room beam line has now been designed to be 'general purpose', to be used for research in different fields. Possible activities could be, as an example, irradiation of cells, test of beam monitors, development of in-beam monitoring devices or radiation hardness studies. In a second stage a third source will be added to the present two in order to carry on experiments with additional ion species besides the two used presently for treatments, protons and carbon ions. In this paper a description of the design and of the construction status is given.

  This paper reports on the final design and the work in progress on the STAR project (IPAC2014:WEPRO115), which is under construction at the Univ. of Calabria (Italy). The project is devoted to the construction of an advanced Thomson source of monochromatic tunable, ps-long, polarized X-ray beams, ranging from 40 up to 140 KeV . At present the buildings and main plants have been completed as the acquisition of main components: the RF photo-injector, the accelerating section, laser systems for collision and photo-cathode, RF Power Source and magnets are ready to start installation and site acceptance tests. The design of laser lines is complete and simulated by ZEMAX, aiming to minimize energy losses, optical distortions and providing a tunable experimental setup as well. The RF power network is close to be tested, it's based on a 55MW (2.5us pulse) S-band Klystron driven by a 500kV Pulse Forming Network based modulator and a Low Level RF system, running at 100 Hz. The Control System is been designed using EPICS and allows to manage easily and fastly each machine parameter. We expect to start commissioning the machine by the end of 2016 and obtain the first collisions within the first part of 2017.
