Development of Enhanced Models of Plasma-Beam Interaction

Student: Aravinda Perera
Supervisor: Carsten Welsch

The Development of Enhanced Models of the Plasma-beam Interaction will be the goal of a student who will work closely with specialist software developer TECHX. They will develop novel algorithms covering fully hybrid simulations, the inclusion of beamstrahlung and particle emission, as well as computational accelerators and benchmark simulation results against measurements with CERN (AWAKE project) to identify ways to optimise emittance, energy sharpness and pulse structure and pave the way for real-time diagnostics.
