oPAC Topical Workshop on Beam Loss Monitors

Published on

The latest Topical Workshop of the oPAC network has taken place in Barcelona on 15th  – 16th September, right after the International Beam Instrumentation Conference (IBIC), and it was devoted to Beam Loss Monitors.

The workshop attracted around 30 delegates to discuss the latest developments in the BLM systems of facilities from all over the world, from the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center in California to the Australian Synchrotron down under, not forgetting European machines like XFEL, ESFR, ‌and the LHC. 

The comparatively reduced size of the meeting allowed for longer and more in-depth discussions that had been possible during the much larger IBIC conference, offering the delegates a better opportunity for exchanging ideas and expertise.

The workshop on BLMs culminated an intense week of discussions on particle beams instrumentation in Barcelona.
