High power test results on C-band accelerating structures

Beam energy upgraded from 180 to 250 MeV in SPARC photo-injector facility at INFN LNF with the help of C-Band structures.

News about Tiara

The TIARA preparatory phase has been extended for one year, until December 31st 2014.

RF drive system for MICE installed at the ICTF

Ionisation cooling is required to reduce the emittance of a muon beam rapidly for application in future accelerators for neutrino factories and muon colliders.

Upgrade of the Swiss Light Source for R&D on ultralow vertical emittance

A high resolution beam size monitor has been commissioned at the SLS for verification of vertical emittance values below 1 pm.

Concluding the TIARA Preparatory Phase

Almost 3 years since the TIARA Kickoff meeting, the TIARA participants met in Daresbury to review the progress within the Work Packages (WPs) and finalise the last deliverables.

E-learning: a new training opportunity for European accelerator science

Currently around 500 students each year commence master’s and PhD courses related to accelerator science and technology.

A versatile test cryostat for low beta superconducting cavities

In WP9 of the TIARA-PP project, the IPN Orsay team has raised the challenge of designing a versatile test cryostat capable to host almost all type of fully-equipped SC cavities, including the wide range of low beta structures.

Demonstration of Rf drive system MICE achieved

Ionisation cooling is required to reduce the emittance of a muon beam rapidly for application in future accelerators for neutrino factories and muon colliders.
