Theo Murphy international scientific meeting organised by Professor Bernhard Hidding, Dr Mark Hogan, Dr Ralph Assmann, Professor Patric Muggli and Professor James Rosenzweig.
Electric fields in plasmas waves, driven by relativistic particle beams, can accelerate particles to tens of Giga-electron-volt energies on metre-scale distances. Recent conceptual and experimental breakthroughs have ushered in a worldwide effort which may be transformative for accelerators and their applications for natural, life and material sciences. This meeting will discuss emerging trends and prospects of this new kind of compact accelerators.
This is a residential conference, which allows for increased discussion and networking. There is also the opportunity to present a poster.
