CERN Accelerator School - High-Gradient Wakefield Accelerators

CERN Accelerator School - High-Gradient Wakefield Accelerators


Registration is now open for the CERN Accelerator School’s course on High-Gradient Wakefield Accelerators, to be held in Sesimbra, Portugal from 11 March to 22 March 2019.

In 2014, the CERN Accelerator School organised a course on Plasma Wake Acceleration, which found large interest in the community. Since this field is very rapidly evolving, CAS is revisiting the topic with a course on High-Gradient Wakefield Acceleration in spring 2019.

Following introductory lectures on plasma and laser physics, the course will cover the different components of a plasma wake accelerator and plasma as well as dielectric beam systems. An overview of the experimental studies, diagnostic tools and state-of-the-art wake acceleration facilities, both present and planned, will complement the theoretical lectures.

The course will be of interest to a wide range of students and staff, working in or having an interest in the field of these new acceleration techniques.
