The physics programs of future hadron accelerators require larger beam current and power than
existing facilities can provide. New facilities are being designed and existing accelerators up-
graded in order to meet this demand. A significant impedement for such high intensity accel-
erators is beam loss, which both damages the activates accelerator components. Losses must
therefore be minimized, and the Fermilab Accelerator Science and Technology (FAST) facility
team is building a storage ring, the Integrable Optics Test Accelerator (IOTA), to investigate ac-
celerator technology for the next generation of particle accelerators. IOTA will host a variety
of experiments with the goal of better understanding and controlling space charge effects and
incoherent instabilities, while developing techniques to minimize beam loss.
