Workshop on Machine Aspects and Physics of the MESA Accelerator


Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz, Germany
May 19-20, 2011


The workshop will focus on machine aspects as well as possible precision measurements at the proposed low-energy electron scattering facility MESA in Mainz. The MESA accelerator will combine two recent breakthroughs in modern accelerator physics, namely the successful realization of high-gradient CW superconducting cavities and the design of energy-recovering linear (ERL) technology. Physics topics to be discussed include future low-energy precision measurements of the Weinberg angle and the search for low-energy gauge bosons of the so-called dark sector.
