Multi-Pass Superconducting Energy Recovery Linacs – Accelerator Physics Design for Future Facilities

In collaboration with our partners in the Cockcroft Institute of Accelerator Science and Technology, the accelerator physics group in the department of physics at Lancaster University has a PhD studentship available for October 2022. Read more

Understanding and optimising laser-driven ion acceleration

A studentship is available from October 2022 on numerical modelling of laser-driven ion acceleration. Ultra-intense laser pulses can rapidly ionise matter and excite accelerating fields that are orders of magnitude higher than those characterising conventional accelerators. Read more

FLASH VHEE Radiotherapy Machine System Design

FLASH-RT entails delivering a high dose over a sub-second timescale and there have been experiments on animals which indicate cancerous regions suffer lethal damage whereas healthy tissues show little impairment. Read more

Timing stabilised links for AWAKE Run 2.

AWAKE is the world first and only proton-driven plasma wakefield acceleration experiment and it has successfully demonstrated the electron acceleration up to 2 GeV in a 10 m long plasma. Read more

Mitigation of Beam Impedance for Machine Elements with Interferences

The performance of the CERN accelerators, and in particular the desired doubling of beam intensity in the injector chain to reach the HL-LHC target is critically depending on beam coupling impedance contributions of machine components. Read more

Optical transition radiation diagnostics for low energy ion beams

This project provides excellent opportunities for cutting edge research into beam diagnostics. The project will be based at world-class institutions in the UK and Germany and you will be given opportunities to spend significant time in both countries. Read more

Longitudinal Density Monitor for the Large Hadron Collider

At the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the world’s largest and highest energy particle accelerator, ion bunches circulate in two counter-rotating beams and are brought into collision. Read more

Reconstruction of Transverse Beam Distribution using Machine Learning

The beam transverse distribution in CERN's high-radiation environment is measured by imaging the light generated by the particle beam hitting a scintillating screen, using cameras produced in-house based on radiation hard tubes. Read more
