In Sweden, the plan to build a particle accelerator 12 March 2013

Or ESS European Spallation Source – a new particle accelerator, which is going to be built in Lund, Sweden. On this venture was announced several years ago, but the organizers decided to hold a competition to develop the best design for this design.

Central “face” of the campus will be the ESS 600-meter long linear accelerator, where protons will be accelerated in the tungsten facility for final release of neutrons. This process is called nuclear fission. Hence the name of the object. Obtained and analyzed data are then sent to another factory in Copenhagen, in Denmark. It is planned that the accelerator in Lund will be 30 times larger and more powerful than similar structures of the same type.

So as a result of the competition won compass Henning Larsen Architects. According to their idea campus area will be 100,000 square meters, which be located several laboratories, offices and even cognitive space for the visitors. Crown chip campus will have to be a huge circular roof, which will cover the main working area.

The buildings are located within the campus so that they can close the work area from different weather conditions, such as wind, but at the same time did not allow people to feel the closeness of the space and provide extra space for various meetings in the open air.

It also refers to the construction of an irrigation system with rain water garden that will be located around the campus itself.


Before construction remained relatively long wait. The first scientific evidence already planning to hold in 2019. Full completion of all construction work will have to happen in 2025.
