Although permanent magnets can significantly reduce the energy consumption of accelerators, their use of rare earths requires best practices, as discussed by experts at the latest I.FAST workshop.
Organised this September, a special topics workshop was an opportunity to discuss the international landscape of novel accelerators
To be renewed next summer, I.FAST project’s yearly student challenge explored environmental and societal applications of accelerator technology.
The CLIC collaboration is moving towards its technical design report.
Inspired by the production of NEG-coated vacuum chambers, this novel technique for high quality Nb/Cu cavities that can be used in FCC-ee has completed its first qualitative feasibility study.
With its first major equipment now in place and infrastructure nearly installed, HL-LHC’s test bed is on track to start operation in 2024.
At the second EPOL workshop, the FCC-ee community looked at methods for determining energy with ever greater precision
Held in November, the 2022 Advanced Course on Accelerator Physics brought a challenging year for the CERN Accelerator School to a close.
Aimed at reducing the energy use of accelerator facilities, the Zero Power Tunable Optics project demonstrated the replacement of resistive electromagnets with permanent ones whilst retaining field strength adjustability.
EuPRAXIA is the first European project that develops a dedicated particle accelerator research infrastructure based on novel plasma acceleration concepts and laser technology.
