Particle accelerators are propellers for future science enabling fundamental research and new technology developments. Lasers are used in a variety of applications for accelerators from ion generation and acceleration through to diagnostic techniques essential for performance optimization. During this 3-day international conference the following areas will be covered:
- Laser-based particle sources
- Laser-driven particle beam acceleration
- Lasers for beam diagnostics and fs timing systems
- System integration
The program will consist of invited talks from all above areas, as well as contributed talks that will be selected by the Programme Committee from all contributions to the event. The conference proceedings will be published in a special edition of Nuclear Instruments and Methods A.
The Laser Applications at Accelerators Conference 2015 will be held in conjunction with the 5thTopical Workshop on Beam Diagnostics (23rd – 24th March at the same venue) to enable attendance at both events without extra travelling. It is organized by 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.
