The world will learn accelerator technology at EITs summer school

 

Students from Europe, Australia and USA will during August 17-23 participate in a summer school hosted by EIT and directed by the Nordic Particle Accelerator School (NPAS).

NPAS is a joint European project between Lund University, ESS, MAX IV Laboratory, Uppsala University, Aarhus University, University of Oslo, Jyväskylää University and the course will be held by experts from the NPAS-members respectively. 

 Earlier this year EIT, ESS and MAX IV were granted a contribution of 3 MSEK in order to run a summerschool, to develop a MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) and to create a network for education within accelerator technology.

From EITs side our experts Anders Karlsson and Anders J Johansson will participate and more on the summerschool can be found on EITs courseplan Fundamentals on Accelerator Physics  

MAX IV

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.
