CERN Accelerator School - Beam Instrumentation

Registration is now open for the CERN Accelerator School’s course on beam instrumentation, to be held in Tuusula, Finland from 2 to 15 June 2018

Ten years after the last course on beam instrumentation in Dourdan (FR) the CERN Accelerator School (CAS) proposes again a course on beam instrumentation. This course will be of interest to staff and students in accelerator laboratories, university departments and companies manufacturing accelerator equipment who wish to learn about beam instrumentation technologies, data treatment and accelerator performance diagnostics.

The course is split into morning lectures and afternoon “hands-on” courses. During the mornings typical instruments for high- and low-energy linear and circular accelerators will be explained. Many application examples will be shown including some elementary background on particle dynamics. In the afternoons students will be split into classes working with real equipment on beam position measurements, optical diagnostics, RF measurements and digital signal processing. The course participants will rotate during the duration of the school, so every student will participate in all classes.
