German experts for short-pulse electron accelerators meet at the HZDR

Online News - 25.02.2014

From February 26 to 27, 2014 scientists and students working in the field of accelerator physics meet for the second topical workshop on “ps - fs Electron and Photon Beams”.

During their meeting at the HZDR the roughly 50 participants from the leading German accelerator facilities and universities focus on three fundamental areas of current research in the field of short-pulse electron accelerators: research related to synchronization and seeding, ultra-fast pulse diagnostics, and photon radiation and interaction. Thus the workshop aims to bring together scientists and postgraduate students from universities and Helmholtz centers that are involved in the subtopic 3 (ST3) “ps – fs Electron and Photon Beams” of the program topic “Accelerator Research and Development”.

The workshop is organized by the Institute of Radiation Physics at the HZDR together with colleagues from Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and Deutsches Elektronen Synchrotron (DESY).
