The Booster accelerator is one of the older machine. Developed in the 60ís (first p+ in 72) to increase injection energy in the PS from 50 to 800 MeV. Since its creation, the PS Booster extraction energy has already been increased three times:

  • 800MeV to 1GeV (1988)
  • 1 GeV to 1.4GeV (1999)
  • 1.4 GeV to 2 GeV (2020)
