European Spallation Source AB
Dr. Andreas Jansson has a MSc in Applied Physics Engineering from Linköping University and a PhD in Physics from Stockholm University.
He started his career in accelerators as a CERN Technical Student, working on methods for automatic beam steering and matching. This led him to study the problem of non-invasive measurement of matching and beam size. In 2002 he was awarded the Faraday Cup for his PhD work developing a quadrupole pick-up for the CERN PS. Following a postdoctoral Fellowship at CERN, Andreas became a People's Fellow and later a Staff Scientist, at Fermilab.
During his career, Andreas has been working on the development of various diagnostics devices, including ionization profile monitors, microwave Schottky pick-ups and AC dipoles, mainly at the Fermilab Tevatron and the CERN LHC. For several years, he was also part of the team responsible for the operation of the Tevatron Collider.
Since 2010 Andreas has led the Beam Diagnostics Group at the European Spallation Source in Lund, Sweden.
