Abstract

The demand for CW electron beam energies of more than 1 GeV led to the decision of constructing a worldwide unique accelerator – the Harmonic Double-Sided Microtron (HDSM). This machine nearly doubles the beam energy of the Mainz Microtron cascade from up to 855 MeV to now 1.6 GeV to extend the experimental capabilities for nuclear and particle physics experiments to higher excitation energies. For the recent decade the construction and commissioning of the HDSM at the Institut für Kernphysik has been the major task of the accelerator department.
