Cockcroft Institute Particle Accelerator School

On the 9th of November Cockcroft will host the 2nd CI particle accelerator school (CIPAS). CIPAS is a two week residential postgraduate course for UK PhD students, on the design of particle accelerators with a strong computational design emphasis. CIPAS starts at an introductory level (prerequisite UG electromagnetism and relativity) and covers beam dynamics, radio frequency acceleration, magnets, vacuum and diagnostics. As part of the schools the students will design a 3rd generation light source from scratch, including all relevant subsystems, and will present it to the lecturers. Places on the course are limited to reserve your place now at
