In Spring 2021, the 9th workshop dedicated to vacuum arcs MeVArc took place online – it aims at better understanding how electric discharges occur in vacuum.
Half of a CERN high-gradient test facility embarks on a new life at the University of Melbourne
Last February, the Compact Linear Collider (CLIC) team working on technical developments organised a workshop on all the different technologies developed for producing, handling, and preserving nanobeams and ultra-short bunches.
Stray magnetic fields are a serious consideration in the design CLIC. Measurements to characterise stray magnetic fields at CERN are presented and a mitigation technique for CLIC is discussed.
Exploring novel technologies for major savings in the energy consumption and cost of future accelerators.
Flexibility and versatility, together with a dynamic and experienced team of researchers, are key ingredients for the success of the new CLEAR facility, exploring novel accelerator concepts at CERN.
