Accelerator physicists working on the recently funded SuperB accelerator in Italy have been collaborating with Diamond’s accelerator physicists to test new techniques for low emittance tuning, which can potentially benefit both Diamond and the SuperB.
As a relatively new 3rd generation synchrotron, Diamond is at the forefront of accelerator developments and ideally placed for testing new techniques and ideas.
“We are delighted to be working with the SuperB project team on this accelerator development work. New techniques for low emittance tuning are of interest to us because they will help us to improve the performance of Diamond for all the scientific researchers who conduct experiments at the facility. The SuperB project is of great interest to the UK science community. Advances on both the detector and accelerator side are expected and there will be opportunities for UK scientists and companies to work on this flagship Italian science project.”
