Charged Particle Accelerators for Nuclear Technologies


BM@N (Baryonic Matter at Nuclotron) is the first experiment to be realized at the NICA-Nuclotron accelerator complex. The aim of the BM@N experiment is to study relativistic heavy ion beam interactions with fixed targets. The BM@N setup, results of Monte Carlo simulations, and the BM@N experimental program are presented.
