The course gives an introduction to particle accelerators and gives the students 3 ECTS. During the week, students will have lectures, run a small project and have visits to ESS and MAX IV. Topics addressed are synchrotron light sources, spallation sources, accelerator physics, optics, tools, computer simulations, beam diagnostics, RF sources and components, magnet technology, medical applications, proton cyclotrons, hadron therapy and much more.
Participants will also be introduced to how research frontiers are continuously pushed with help from higher beam energy, better beam brilliance, new theories, better technologies and other significant parameters.
EIT and the accelerator school managment says a warm welcome to everyone participating in this event that will contribute actively in the build-up of the regions emerging high-technology accelerator environment.
