The Cern High-energy AcceleRator test facility (CHARM) is a radiation test facility at CERN born in the context of R2E project.  It is used to qualify components and systems mainly for Large Hadron Collider (LHC) accelerator equipment applications. The radiation field is generated through the interaction of a 24 GeV/c proton beam extracted from the Proton Synchrotron (PS) with a metallic target. The corresponding mixed-field environment resembles that present in the vicinity of a high-energy accelerator and can be adapted to the application conditions by selecting different test configurations.
