Note that the "Sounds of the Holy city" festival takes place during the same dates as the workshop. The old city where the festival is taking place is within a short walk from the hotel.
If you have not done so - please complete registration "part b". Note that payment can be done using microsoft explorer/edge or google chrome. WE have various reports on problems using Mac's Safari or other browsers.
Saraf visit users had to finalize forms submission. If in doubt, please check with Lea Ben Ari email@example.com .
After the Saraf visit we will have a few hours in Tel aviv returning to the hotel towards 22:00.
Note we still have a few slots open for Posters at the poster session. We encourage participants to bring posters summarizing their talks as a way to facilitate discussions.
Vacuum arcs are a concern in nearly every vacuum electronic device, consequently they are present in a very wide range of applications. Sometimes they form the basis for device operation, but all too often they are the primary failure mode.
Understanding the physical processes of an arc requires the expertise from many disciplines – material science, surface physics, plasma physics, high-voltage systems and radio frequency to name a few.
The purpose of this workshop series is to bring together scientists and engineers from many different applications and disciplines to discuss the latest efforts to understanding of vacuum arcs. We cover theory, simulation and experiments.
The workshop will run from March 19 - 23 2017 in Jerusalem, Israel. See the timetable for lecture topics. The First day of the workshop will be dedicated to a tour of the SARAF accelerator on March 19.
The organizers wish to acknowledge the following foundations for providing funding for organizing the workshop:
PAZI foundation. SANDIA National Labs. CERN/CLIC. Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
