Dose Delivery Concept and Instrumentation / Giordanengo, Simona (INFN, Turin) ; Donetti, Marco (CNAO, Milan)
Radiation therapy aims to deliver the prescribed amount of dose to a tumour at the same time as sparing the surrounding tissues as much as possible. In charged particle therapy, delivering the prescribed dose is equivalent to delivering the prescribed number of ions of a given energy at each position of the irradiation field. [...]

Never Run Your ECR Ion Source with Argon in Afterglow for 6 Months! / Küchler, Detlef (CERN) ; Michet, Alice (CERN) ; Ferreira Somoza, Jose (CERN) ; Toivanen, Ville (CERN)
The fixed target experiment NA61/SHINE in the North Area of the SPS at CERN studies phase transitions in strongly interacting matter using the primary beams available from the CERN accelerator complex (protons and lead ions). In order to explore a wider range of energies and densities a primary argon beam was requested for the physics run in 2015. [...]
