Blaine Lomberg studied physics at the University of the Western Cape in South Africa. He then finished his Honours Degree in Nuclear Physics in 2009. In 2010, Blaine joined the Accelerator Group at iThemba LABS where he worked within the field of ion source physics undertaking a Master’s Degree, focusing on an emittance diagnostic device for beam quality measurements of different ion sources.

Blaine joined oPAC as a Marie Curie Fellow in September 2012 and is based at the Cockcroft Institute in Daresbury, UK. Within the Quasar Group he is working on beam halo measurements, developing new techniques and using advanced R&D technology for novel beam instrumentation. His research involves studies of beam halo theory from various accelerators machines, as well as into light generation, optics, alignment and beam imaging techniques are fundamental for beam diagnostics. He is planning to develop a new code that combines known halo formation processes into one single halo generator, using the resulting beam distribution for particle tracking through different accelerators, such as CTF3, the ESS Linac or parts of the FAIR complex.


Blaine Lomberg has now left the QUASAR Group.
