Accelerator physicists working on the recently funded SuperB accelerator in Italy have been collaborating with Diamond’s and JAI's accelerator physicists to test new techniques for low emittance tuning, which can potentially benefit both Diamond and the SuperB.
On October 6, 2010, a workshop titled "Opportunities from Accelerator Technology" was held in the JAI.
From September 14-17th, a team of Oxford Physics students (led by JAI final year DPhil student Suzie Sheehy) visited the British Science Festival to perform 16 shows about particle accelerators to 11-14 year old students.
Professor Andrei Seryi took over the Directorship of the John Adams Institute for Accelerator Science (JAI) on August 9th 2010, succeeding Professor Ken Peach, who was Director from May 2005.
Suzanne Sheehy has been awarded an 1851 Fellowship and will be the Commission's Brunel Research Fellow for 2010. This is awarded annually to the highest placed successful candidate for an 1851 Fellowship who has proposed an engineering project which will be pursued in an academic environment.
