Accelerator science has demonstrated a rich history of inventions, often inspired by Nature itself. The history of accelerator science, expressed in the form of the so-called Livingston plot which shows energy reached versus time, describes this history via a sequence of ascending steps corresponding to the birth and saturation of particular technologies of acceleration, followed by the birth of even newer technologies.
Starting this year, JAI has become a partner of the Joint Universities Accelerator School – JUAS. It is the fifteenth university partner collaborating within the framework of this international school.
JAI has joined JUAS
Earlier this month, JAI participated in the 11th session of the Ministerial UK-Russia Joint Committee on Scientific and Technical Co-operation, held at the Royal Society, London. The meeting represented an important milestone in strengthening the cooperation between the two countries.
In September 70 members of the UK particle physics community met in Oxford and participated in an informal meeting of the Linear Collider – UK (LCUK) group.
The John Adams Institute for Accelerator Science has hosted the 3rd Low Emittance Ring Workshop in Oxford on July 8th-10th. The workshop was attended by more than 80 scientists representing 25 institutes and brought together accelerator experts from the community of light sources, colliders and damping rings. The workshop was organised in five sessions covering many aspects of the design and operation of low emittance accelerators, the challenges with collective effects and the most recent technology advancements in magnets, vacuum and diagnostics design.
