Description

The Mainz Energy recovery Superconducting Accelerator (MESA) is currently under construction. The accelerator principle of an energy recovery linac will provide a high polarized electron beam with a beam current of up to 10mA with high polarization and an excellent beam quality at the same time, however at a modest end-point energy of around 100 MeV. The high internal current allows to use a low density gas target for high precision experiments. In this talk, the current design of the experimental setup for these experiments will be presented and possible experiments will be discussed.
