The DAPHNE Beam Test Facility
The DAFNE Beam Test Facility (BTF) is a beam transfer line optimized to
produce single electrons and positrons mainly for high-energy detectors calibration
in the energy range between 50 and 750 MeV.
The BTF has been successfully commissioned in February 2002, and started
operation in November of the same year.
Although the facility is optimized for single particle production it can
provide electrons and positrons in a wide range of multiplicity, 1-1010 particle (50 Hz repetition rate, 10 ns pulses),
different diagnostic devices, from high-energy calorimeters and ionization/fluorescence
chambers in the few particles range, to standard beam diagnostics systems.
The schemes of operation, the commissioning results, as well as the first
users' experience are presented.
