Recent discussions about accelerators in high energy physics identified several challenges for the future, where it is necessary to focus particle beams over a distance of a few cm. In this paper, we investigate the focusing of particles by a new crystal device having such a capability. The trajectories of 180 GeV/c pions passing through a 500 µm thick focusing crystal were reconstructed using silicon microstrip detectors. It is shown that a parallel beam of particles can be focused in one plane at a distance of 15.5 cm from the crystal, in a narrow line with an rms width of 8 µm.

Abstract

Recent discussions about accelerators in high energy physics identified several challenges for the future, where it is necessary to focus particle beams over a distance of a few cm. In this paper, we investigate the focusing of particles by a new crystal device having such a capability. The trajectories of 180 GeV/c pions passing through a 500 µm thick focusing crystal were reconstructed using silicon microstrip detectors. It is shown that a parallel beam of particles can be focused in one plane at a distance of 15.5 cm from the crystal, in a narrow line with an rms width of 8 µm.
