Karlsruhe Institute of Technology

Technological facility @ KIT

The KIT Accelerator Technology Platform (ATP) provides a central access-point for large-scale accelerator projects to KIT-based accelerators (KARA, FLUTE) and Know-How located at KIT institutes (IANM, IAR, IBPT, IHM, IMS, IMT, IPE, IPQ, ITEP, ITIV, ITTK, LAS, SCC). This Know-How covers compact magnet technology, vacuum technology, laser technology and materials science, terahertz sensors, nano- and microtechnology, electronics and high performance computing, cryogenics and superconductor technology, microwave and pulsed power technology, mathematics, numerics, physics and modelling, imaging, and cooperation with industry. Access to KIT-based accelerators via ATP is augmented by European transnational access via ARIES (Accelerator Research and Innovation for European Science and Society) for accelerator researchers and via CALIPSOplus for small and medium-sized enterprises (SME), and by the European technology infrastructure AMICI (Accelerator and Magnetic Infrastructure for Cooperation and Innovation). The infrastructures Karlsruhe Research Accelerator (KARA), KIT short-pulse linac test facility and THz source (FLUTE), Magnet Characterization Facilities (MCF), electronic packaging and interconnects center (AVT), "KIT ASIC and Detector Laboratory" (KIT ADL) and cryogenics laboratories contribute to KIT ATP, which combines accelerator-relevant infrastructures, technologies and research in a unique way, taking advantage of the wide-spread expertise of KIT institutes to advance accelerator science and technology. KIT ATP cooperates with strategic industry partners such as Bilfinger Noell GmbH in the field of superconducting magnet technology and insertion devices.
