First beam on target At the new Tandetron

First beam on target was achieved at the Nuclear Microprobe line at zero degrees during March 2018.  The scanned image of the beam on a Cu grid with letters (128 x 128 pixels and a maximum area of 2.667 mm) is shown in Fig. 1. Figure 2 shows the full NMP end station including the scanning coils, quadrupoles and scattering chamber ready installed in the zero-degree line.
