The linear accelerator Linac-200 at JINR is a new facility, constructed to provide electron test beams to carry out particle detectors R&D, to perform studies of advanced methods of electron beam diagnostics, and for applied research. The core of the facility is a refurbished MEA accelerator from NIKHEF. The key accelerator subsystems including controls, vacuum, precise temperature regulation were completely redesigned or deeply modernized. Two test beam channels are available for users: the first one with electron energy in range 5–25 MeV and maximum pulse current 60 mA; and the second one with electron energy in range 40–200 MeV and maximum pulse current 40 mA. The pulse current varies smoothly from the maximum value down to almost zero (single electrons in a pulse). This report presents the status and operation parameters of the facility.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
