Common to all working groups Initial facility parameters will be established in order to avoid diverging by using different options. The initial baseline parameters will be updated each time it is proved that new values of these parameters would increase the performance of the facility.

Design of the near detector

The design of the near detector will be provided including the layout of its installation and the physics performance.

Near detector requirements.

The Near detector requirements (beam monitoring, crsoss-section measurements,...) will be clearly established before proceeding to the design of this detector.

Optimized design of the magnetic horn

An optimized design of the magnetic horn will be provided, considering requirements from the pulse generator taking into the beam frequency defined by the other WG.

Final Physics Performance.

Final Physics Performance

Physics Performance and comparison with other proposals

After a second optimization, the facility Physics Performance will be re-evaluated. A comparison with other proposals will also be performed.

Conceptual design of the ESS RF power upgrade

Conceptual design of the ESS RF power upgrade powering and cooling schemes integration into the existing system

Design of the far detector and its performance evaluation.

The design of the far detector and its performance evaluation will be provided according to the choice of detection technic and size of the detector
