Background

Yelong Wei received his master degree in July 2012 from the University of Chinese Academy of Sciences (UCAS) with a major in Electromagnetic Fields and Microwave Technology, his bachelor degree was awarded in June 2009 from Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics with a major in Electronics Information Science and Technology. During the period of pursuing his master degree, he devoted himself to research on the design of the superconducting RF accelerating cavity and relevant microwave systems in Shanghai Key Laboratory of Cryogenics & Superconducting RF Technology, Shanghai Synchrotron Radiation Facility. In July 2012, after graduation from UCAS, he joined Tektronix Inc. and worked as an RF Design Engineer. His work mainly focused on RF modules including passive/active circuits design in the RF signal generator.

In March 2014, Yelong joined the QUASAR Group as a Marie Curie Fellow within the LA³NET project at the University of Liverpool. His work will focus on the development of a compact, fibre optics-based electron accelerator. Within this project, the coupling of both laser light and electrons beams into different fibre structures is being studied and optimized to maximize acceleration efficiency and enable quantitative measurements for both process. Studies are being carried out in collaboration with experts from UCLA and the Universities of Tokyo and Manchester.
