The specialist expertise available in the group provides ASTeC with the
ability to design, fabricate, commission and ultimately operate a wide
variety of complex accelerator systems; expertise which includes:
- Optimised electro-magnetic design of both normal-conducting and super-conducting accelerating structures.
- Analogue and digital Low Level RF control system design and implementation.
- Cryogenic system process optimisation and plant infrastructure development.
work closely with international collaborating laboratories and
institutes to propel technological developments as part of ASTeC's
strategic mission. Being an integral member of the Cockcroft Institute,
the group has a strong history of collaboration with both Manchester and
Lancaster Universities for the development of advanced RF and
diagnostics systems for the next generation of collider accelerators.
The group also has an ongoing remit to promote knowledge exchange
opportunities with UK industry for accelerator technology development.
