One of the next challenges in fundamental physics is to understand the origin of matter/antimatter asymmetry in the Universe. Neutrinos could play an important role to elucidate this mystery and better understand the expansion of the Universe. In this context, intense neutrino beams are fundamental tools to study the properties of these particles.
The ESSnuSB collaboration proposes to use the proton LINAC of the European Spallation Source currently under construction in Lund (Sweden) to produce a very intense neutrino super beam, in parallel with the spallation neutron production. A very challenging part of the proposed facility is the Target Station which will use 5 MW proton beam power. This paper presents an overview of the Target Station.
