Description

Diagnostics systems are essential constituents of any accelerator. They reveal the properties of a beam and how it behaves in a machine. Without an appropriate set of diagnostic elements it would simply be impossible to operate any accelerator let alone optimise its performance. Lasers provide the highest time and spatial resolutions for transverse and longitudinal beam profile measurements, they allow the detection of density differences in particle beams with high dynamic ranges and permit measurements of very important machine parameters such as the momentum compaction factor and beam emittance. These topics will be addressed in a dedicated Topical Workshop on laser-based Beam Diagnostics.

The event will be structured around the different topic areas relating to beam diagnostics. Each topic will be initiated by a renowned speaker invited to give a talk of 40 minutes about the state-of-the-art and their own research in this field. This will be followed by 20 minute talks by other delegates about latest research results. All participants in the workshop are invited to use the 'Submit a new abstract' link to upload abstracts for consideration by the Programme Committee.

The Beam Diagnostics Workshop will be held in conjunction with an international Conference in Laser Applications at Accelerators (25th – 27th March at the same venue) to enable attending both events with minimal travel. The workshop is organized by the Cockcroft Institute-based organisations STFC and the University of Liverpool in partnership with the LA³NET consortium. 

LA³NET has received funding from the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement no 289191.
