DURACOSYS Conference, Greece, 12-15 September 2010 (CLIC Note 857)
STUDY OF THE SUPPORTING SYSTEM FOR THE CLIC TWO-BEAM MODULE
The Compact Linear Collider (CLIC) study aims at the development of a Multi-TeV e+ e-collider.
The micro-precision CLIC structures will have an accelerating gradient of 100 MV/m and will be
aligned on so-called girders. The girder construction constrains are mainly dictated by the beam
physics and RF requirements. The study of such girders is a challenging case involving material
choice, mechanical design as well as prototype fabrication and experimental testing.
