Abstract.

The Beta-Beam is a concept of large-scale facility that aims at providing pure electronic neutrino and antineutrino beams for the measurement of \( \nu_{e}^{}\) \( \rightarrow\) \( \nu_{\mu}^{}\) oscillations. Beta-decaying nuclides are produced in large amounts in a facility of the scale of EURISOL, and are then post-accelerated and stored at large \( \gamma\) in a racetrack decay ring. We present here a conceptual design of the accelerator chain of a Beta-Beam based at CERN.
