The Marie Curie Initial Training Network LA³NET is initiating a series of Topical Workshops to cover the main research areas on laser applications at accelerators which are explored within the LA³NET project. The first Topical Workshop will address generation of electron and ion beams with laser methods. It will take place at CERN where an expertise on production of electron beams with photoinjectors and resonance laser ionization of radioactive isotopes has been accumulated. Although the Workshop targets the LA³NET trainees it is open to external participants. All participants in the workshop are invited to use the 'Submit a new abstract' link to upload abstracts. A number of leading scientists in the field will be invited.
The main topics of the Workshop are following:
  • Lasers and photocathodes for production of high brightness electron beams 
  • RF and DC photoinjectors 
  • Hot cavity and gas cell ion sources for radioactive ion beam facilities 
  • Laser systems for highly efficient resonance ionization 
  • Optimizing selectivity for resonance ionization laser ion sources 
  • In-source spectroscopy of rare nuclides
