COMPASS experiment
"A New QCD Facility at the M2 beam line of the CERN SPS (COMPASS++/AMBER)"

Possibility to use high intensity secondary beams at the SPS M2 beam
line in combination with the world’s largest polarized target, liquid hydrogen,
liquid deuterium and various nuclear targets create a unique opportunity
for universal experimental facility to study previously unexplored aspects
of meson and nucleon structure, QCD dynamics and hadron spectroscopy. 

High intensity hadron (pion dominated) beams already made COMPASS the
world leading facility for hadron spectroscopy and  hadron structure
study through Drell-Yan production of di-muon pairs. High intensity
muon beams, previously used for unique semi-inclusive and exclusive
hard scattering programs, make possible proton radius measurement in
muon-proton elastic scattering and further development of polarized
exclusive hard scattering program.
Upgrades of the M2 beam line resulting in high intensity RF-separated
anti-proton- and kaon-beams would greatly expand the horizon of experimental
possibilities at CERN: hadron spectroscopy with kaon beam, studies
of transverse momentum dependent quark structure for protons, pions and
kaons, precise studies of nuclear effects and for the first time measurements
of kaon quark—gluon substructure.
