Narender Kumar graduated from Kurukshetra University, India, with a Master’s degree in Physics in 2009. In June 2010, he started his PhD in the field of Accelerator Physics at Inter University Accelerator centre (IUAC), India. His work focussed on the development of high flux, low energy heavy ion compact beam facility based on 2.45 GHz ECR ion source involving design, simulations, installation and experimental demonstration of this compact facility. He joined Delhi Light Source Project (A compact FEL facility based on pre-bunched electron comb beam) of IUAC in September 2015, where he was involved in Room temperature Copper cavity’s design, beam optics for electron beam and preliminary work on 130 MHz Quarter wave resonator design for future superconducting photo-injector. In parallel, he got training on Superconducting LINAC at IUAC, including cavity surface preparation, Q measurements, RF conditioning and heavy ion beam acceleration for pulsed beams.

In April 2017, he joined as a research associate at IUAC in ECR Ion source group to design a compact mass analyser based on all permanent magnets Wein filter, conduct experimental and simulation studies for enhancing the plasma density. He was also involved in designing of a compact 50 keV ion implanter at Central University of Punjab, India as a collaboration work.

He joined the QUASAR Group as a research associate at the University of Liverpool in April 2019. His primary task includes implementing new techniques into beam instrumentation for either large scientific accelerator or small machine for medical usage.  His recent work includes gas-jet monitor based beam profile monitors, halo monitor, VELO detector and Optical fibre analysis system. He is also interested in simulation of beam dynamics for low energy beams.
