Abstract

The project consists in the feasibility study of a hybrid acceleration scheme (laser+linac) for proton beams. The hybrid accelerator would be the first stage of the infrastructure PROMETHEUS, proposed for biomedical studies and applications. The infrastructure would be located in the Montecuccolino laboratory of the University of Bologna, which hosted the nuclear reactor RB3, whose decommissioning will soon be completed. The project has been approved by the Academic Senate of the Bologna University and priority to this project has been assigned by the Rector for the use of the Montecuccolino laboratory. Even the local Authority (Regione Emilia Romagna) have express the interest on tho project. If the design study is successful the PROMETHEUS infrastructure would become a national facility for biomedical studies of European relevance.
