Remote access optical synchrotron radiation imaging at Diamond Light Source

In this global lockdown period most experimental physics has understandably been put on hold. With most of the world’s scientists unable to reach or access their experiments, efforts have shifted to simulations and planning for the future. And so, a group of physicists spread across t

EuPRAXIA 1st Collaboration Week in Hamburg

As the EuPRAXIA design study advances, it becomes increasingly complicated to have a complete overview of the project. The different work packages are closely interconnected and their common issues need to be clear to all involved. For that reason a series of EuPRAXIA Collaboration We

How to measure ultra-small beam sizes?

Some of the smallest particle beams used in accelerators now have diameters in the nanometer range. It is extremely challenging to reliably characterize these beams. Light generated by the beam itself as it passes through a screen, referred to as Optical Transition Radiation (OTR), is
