Third year JAI student Lucy Martin works at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, in Oxfordshire, studying beams containing large numbers of particles:

High intensity particle beams are required in a number of applications - not just for particle physics. However, when a large number of particles are confined within an accelerator the forces between these particles can lead to collective effects and ultimately particle loss. We use a linear Paul trap, known as the Intense Beam Experiment (IBEX), to experimentally replicate the particle dynamics within a high intensity accelerator.

The 4th Conference to coordinate efforts to design and develop an affordable and robust yet technically sophisticated linear accelerator-based radiation therapy treatment (RTT) system was held in Gabarone, Botswana on March 20-22, 2019. The conference was sponsored by STFC with funding from the UK Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) and supported by CERN and ICEC.
