Valencia | 5-6 May 2014

A workshop on Advanced Low Emittance Rings Technology (ALERT 2014) is organized by IFIC-Valencia on the 5th and 6th of May 2014, as a series of the Low Emittance Rings (LOWεRING) Workshops, supported by the EUCARD2 project.

This is the 1st workshop on Low Emittance Rings technology after the three general ones and one topical on instabilities, organised in the past since 2010:

The state of the art in the design of accelerator systems in light source storage rings has today many challenges and issues in common with those of linear collider damping rings and future e+/e‐ circular collider projects. The series of workshops specifically aims at strengthening the collaborations within the low emittance rings' community, including the LOWεRING collaboration network and the USR workshops community.

The goal of the ALERT2014 workshop is to bring together scientists but also industrial partners who are designing and building hardware for low emittance rings, with an emphasis on studies and experimental programs in existing rings and facilities. The impact of targeting and reaching ultra-low emittances to the design of technical systems will be addressed, including operational issues, manufacturing tolerances, calibration and stability/repeatability problems, in an environment dominated by synchrotron radiation.

Workshop sessions will include:

  • Insertion devices, magnets and alignment
  • Instrumentation for Low Emittance Rings
  • Kicker systems
  • RF system design, including low-level RF systems
  • Vacuum design
  • Feedback systems

Proposals for contributions to the workshop should be addressed to one of the workshop organisers:
