Oxford JAI post doctoral researcher Rebecca Ramjiawan has been awarded a CERN fellowship for work on the transfer line designs for future accelerators starting in September.
Following a successful start to the joint UK accelerator institutes seminar series, the second talk will be given by Dr. Ian Martin on 6th May at 16:15. Dr. Martin's talk will be on the new proposed upgrade to the existing Diamond Light Source, the so called Diamond-II, and can be accessed via the series indico page.
To kick off Trinity term in style, the first of the talks in the new joint UK seminar series will be given on 29th April at 16:15. Dr. Lindroos' talk will be on the status of the European Spallation Source (ESS) and can be accessed via the series indico page.
The two UK particle accelerator institutes, the John Adams Institute and the Cockroft Institute, as well as the STFC's Accelerator Science and Technology Centre are delighted to announce the start of a joint seminar series. The seminar series will begin on the 29th April with a talk from Mats Lindroos on the status of the European Spallation Source and will continue for eight weeks. The topics proposed for discussion range across the entire field of accelerator physics from the AWAKE plasma wakefield project to how we can use machine learning in our work.
The series will be hosted on Zoom. Details of the schedule and how to access the Zoom event can be found on the seminar series Indico page.
One of the biggest mysteries in modern physics is the nature of so called dark matter particles. The illusive particles are thought to make up about 27% of the mass in the universe but their detection has so far evaded scientists. A new facility planned at CERN, the eSPS, seeks to change that. The facility, based around CERN’s Super Proton Synchrotron (SPS), will provide electron beams of up to 18 GeV to the Light Dark Matter eXperiment (LDMX), which would search for dark matter in the mass range we find most ordinary matter, a few MeV to GeV. The current first year PhD students at the John Adams Institute were tasked with completing a design study on the eSPS and then presented the results.
