It will be installed in a side tunnel along an unused transfer line which links the LHC to its injector, the Super Proton Synchrotron.
In present model, the subhadronic degrees of freedom enter via the introduction of a formation time for hadrons produced in the fragmentation of strings [10-12], which are dominant at the early stage of heavy ion collisions (HICs) with high super proton synchrotron (SPS) and RHIC energies.
As per details of the OPERA group they had produced neutrinos at CERN through collisions between protons and a graphite fixed target with the help of super proton synchrotron (SPS) and directed neutrino beams through earth 11.4km in depth at half way to the ending detector placed at Gran Sasso in Italy.
CERN possesses a large cluster of accelerators such as RF Linear Accelerator (LINAC), Proton Synchrotron (PS), Super Proton Synchrotron (SPS), Large Hadron Collider (LHC).

He headed up the particular group that planned the new 300 GeV proton synchrotron for CERN in the late 1960s a a project approved by the member states in 1971, with Amaldi in charge as president of CERN Council.
