Funding: * Supported by the DFG through GRK 2128
The Mainz Energy-recovering Superconducting Accelerator (MESA) will be an electron accelerator allowing operation in energy-recovery linac (ERL) mode, where beam energy is recovered by decelerating the beam in linac cryomodules and transferring kinetic energy to the RF. The ERL mode provides the opportunity to operate experiments at peak energy with thin targets, combining high luminosities typical for storage rings and high beam brightness typical for linacs. The MESA Internal Gas Target Experiment (MAGIX) aims to operate jet targets at high luminosities with different gases up to Xenon. As scattering effects in the beam rise with the atomic number, investigations on the impact of the target on beam dynamics and beam losses are required for machine safety. The goal of this work is to understand target induced halo, track halo particles through downstream sections and protect the machine with a suitable collimation system and shielding from direct and indirect damage through beam losses and radiation. The present status of the investigations is presented.
