Workshop on
Beam Halo Monitoring

19 September, 2014
at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory
following IBIC 2014 in Monterrey

Tiny Protein Crystals  

Understanding and controlling beam halo is important for high-intensity hadron accelerators, for high-brightness electron linacs, and for low-emittance light sources. This can only be achieved by developing suitable diagnostics. The two main challenges faced by such instrumentation are the requirement to be as non-invasive as possible and the high dynamic range needed to observe the halo in the presence of an intense core.

Profiting from the gathering of instrumentation experts at IBIC14 in Monterey, SLAC will host a one-day workshop on this topic on Friday September 19, the day following IBIC. Participation is open. Please register by August 22 if you plan to attend, and submit an abstract if you wish to contribute. A block of rooms at the Stanford Guest House at SLAC have been set aside for booking by August 18.
