Renaissance of the 1 TeV Fixed Target Program
T. Adams, et al., Int J. Mod. Phys, A25,777-813(2010)

Abstract

This document describes the physics potential of a new fixed-target program based on a similar to 1 TeV proton source. Two proton sources are potentially available in the future: the existing Tevatron at Fermilab, which can provide 800 GeV protons for fixed-target physics, and a possible upgrade to the SPS at CERN, called SPS+, which would produce 1 TeV protons on target. In this paper we use an example Tevatron fixed-target program to illustrate the high discovery potential possible in the charm and neutrino sectors. We highlight examples which are either unique to the program or difficult to accomplish at other venues.
