Areas of study

1) Beam Physics:

  • Nonlinear dynamics, collective effects
  • Commissioning of Diamond booster and storage ring
  • 2010 world record for smallest V emittance (2pm) in storage rings
  • Double-Double Bend Achromat (DDBA)
  • Conceptual design of the Diamond-II upgrade

2) FEL Physics:

  • Design of the Linac for the UK New Light source project
  • Generation of attosecond X-ray pulses
