In addition to its Directorate ASTeC has 7 professional groups.
Accelerator Physics Group
The Accelerator Physics Group, led by Deepa Angal-Kalinin, is able to model the behaviour of charged particle beams in accelerators and transport systems, including aspects of nonlinear beam dynamics.
Diagnostics and Instrumentation
The Lasers group undertakes a wide range of activities, spanning from underpinning research in advanced accelerator diagnostic concepts through to development of essential diagnostic instrumentation on ASTeC test facilities.
Magnetics and Radiation Sources Group
The Magnetics and Radiation Sources (MaRS) Group is part of the Accelerator Science and Technology Centre (ASTeC).
Programmes and Facilities
Radio Frequency and Cryogenics Group
The group, led by Alan Wheelhouse, comprises engineers and physicists who develop state of the art RF, Diagnostics and Cryogenics systems for electron and proton particle accelerators.
Vacuum Science Group
The Vacuum Science Group is based at Daresbury Laboratory and is part of the UK's Accelerator Science and Technology Centre, ASTeC.
