Third DITANET School on Beam Diagnostics (2) 

From March, 7th – 11th 2011 an advanced DITANET School on Beam Diagnostics took place in Stockholm, Sweden. The event was hosted by Manne Siegbahn Laboratory with Anders Källberg as local organizer.

The School was combined with the network’s annual meeting and brought together around 100 researchers from major research centres, universities and private industry from all over the world. It started with a recap of some of the key concepts introduced during the first school back in 2009. Helmut Wiedemann, Professor emeritus from Stanford University, started with an introduction to accelerator physics, before beam profile and beam position measurements were covered in one hour lectures by leading experts in the respective field.


During the week, beam instrumentation for specific applications, such as low energy accelerators, light sources, colliders or high intensity accelerators were presented in detail. The intense lecture program was complemented by dedicated Question & Answer sessions, as well as focused tutorials.

In addition, participants were given the opportunity to present their own work in this interdisciplinary field in a poster session that triggered many interesting discussions. An excursion to the island of Utö, a one hour boat ride through ice-covered waters from Stockholm, on Wednesday and a dedicated industry session on Friday rounded up a week that was found extremely enriching by all participants.
