Fifth DITANET Topical Workshop:  Technology Transfer

The fifth DITANET Topical Workshop on Technology Transfer was held on 29th and 30th September 2011. It was hosted by Instrumentation Technologies in Solkan, Slovenia   and co-organised with Instrumentation Technologies’ annual Libera Workshop which discusses beam stability issues from the injection point to the end station. The workshop attracted 29 participants from 22 different machines across 14 countries:  Australia, Brazil, China, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Jordan, Russia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, UK, and US. The workshop addressed new starters as well as experts working on electron and hadron synchrotrons FELs and ERLs. Speakers were selected from the international Libera user community and in-house experts.

During the two days, single pass BPMs in both linacs and transfer lines, eBPMs in storage rings and photon BPMs found e.g. in beam lines were be discussed with a focus on fast global orbit feedback, beam loss monitoring, as well as challenges linked to  timing and synchronization.   In addition new technologies, such as white rabbit, open hardware, software architectures and uTCA, were covered with regard to their implementation into accelerator instrumentation.

These sessions were complemented by discussions on ways to transfer technology from the academic to the industry sector and the important legal aspects that arise in this frame.   Representatives from industry, academia and DITANET trainees discussed the benefits or inter-sector collaboration.
