Transnational Access

The Mainz Microtron MAMI research infrastructure is a continuous wave electron accelerator, operated by the Institute for Nuclear Physics of the University of Mainz (Germany). It consists of the actual accelerator and major experimental equipment described below. The accelerator consists of two sources for unpolarised and polarised electrons, followed by an injection linac, three consecutive race-track-microtrons and a harmonic double-sided microtron (HDSM) providing a maximum beam energy of 1604 MeV.
