Lasers & Accelerators for Science and Society

Published on

Particle accelerators have numerous applications across many fields including fundamental research, medicine, electronics, environment and energy. As the limits of performance are reached new methods for particle acceleration and beam optimisation are needed. 

Lasers will play a key role in the development of accelerators by improving the generation of particle beams, increasing the maximum acceleration gradient, and advanced beam diagnostics methods. 

The Cockcroft Institute/University of Liverpool is proud to host an Outreach Symposium in the Liverpool Convention Centre on 26 June 2015 which will be organized by the European networks oPAC and LA³NET.

Renowned scientists including Prof. Brian Cox (U Manchester), Prof. Grahame Blair (STFC), Prof. Victor Malka (LOA, Paris) and CI member and network coordinator Prof. Carsten P. Welsch who organizes the event with his EU project TEAM will present highlights in accelerator and laser research and the enormous impact these tools had on science and society. 

They will be joined by Fellows from both networks who will present the results of their research and share their fascination for science. The event is already fully booked gathering more than 250 delegates, but we hope that you can join us via webcast.
