Laser wakefield accelerators (LWFA) are able to sustain accelerating gradients orders of magnitude larger than radio-frequency accelerators.
  A novel future ion therapy accelerator
  Dr R Appleby
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Proton therapy is the most rapidly-expanding method of radiotherapy, with a number of new proton treatment centres being established around world that are primarily based on high-intensity isochronous cyclotrons; an example of this is the recently-installed 250 MeV Varian cyclotron at which a research beamline has been installed where Dr.
