Title Advanced Beam Diagnostics R&D within oPAC
Abstract oPAC 'Optimization of Particle Accelerators' is a European research and training network that has received funding by the EU within the 7th Framework Programme. With a total budget of 6 M' and 23 Fellows that are employed within the project, it is the largest Marie Curie network to date. oPAC was started in 2011 and will come to an end at the end of 2015. It currently joins more than 30 partner institutions from all around the world, including research centres, universities and the private sector. One of the projects largest work packages addresses advanced R&D in beam diagnostics. This includes studies into advanced instrumentation for synchrotron light sources and medical accelerators, enhanced beam loss monitoring technologies, ultra-low emittance beam size diagnostics, beam diagnostics for high intensity beams, as well as the development of compact electronics for beam position monitors. This contribution will present the research outcomes of this work package and discuss the demonstrated performance of each diagnostic. A summary of the various events the network has organized for the accelerator community will also be given.
