Could a muon collider be a solution to the problems particle physics faces when pushing the boundaries of the high energy frontier? As part of their JAI accelerator physics course, the current first year PhD students have been completing a design study on the acceleration stage of such a muon collider, detailing the benefits of such a project as well as its downsides.
Despite the mayhem of the current lockdown, Oxford DPhil student, Chetan Gohil, has successfully submitted and defended his thesis. A member of the JAI since 2016, Chet's work of the past few years has been to characterise dynamic imperfections in the Compact Linear Collider, CLIC, a proposed TeV-scale electron-positron collider under development at CERN.
On January 30th 2020, Dr. Daniel Schulte of CERN presented a seminar at the JAI on the design of a future muon collider.
Join us tomorrow at the University of Oxford for JAI Fest 2019!
The Fest will be held in the Dennis Sciama Lecture Theatre, Denys Wilkinson Building, starting with an early lunch/refreshments from 11:30. The scientific programme will start shortly after noon and will conclude around 18:00 with a drinks reception.
Anyone interested in the work of the John Adams Institute is welcome to attend!
Join us on Friday 8th November at 2:15 at the University of Oxford for our first John Adams seminar of the academic year!
Dr. Robert Apsimon from the University of Lancaster will be speaking on "Cleaning up the planet with particle accelerators".
Where: Fisher Room, L5, Denys Wilkinson building, University of Oxford
When: 2:15, Friday 8th November
