About Linac4

The goal of the Linac4 project is to build a 160 MeV H− linear accelerator replacing Linac2 as injector to the PS Booster (PSB). The new linac is expected to increase the beam brightness out of the PSB by a factor of 2, making possible an upgrade of the LHC injectors for higher intensity and eventually an increase of the LHC luminosity.
