Title Beam Diagnostics Developments Within LA³NET
Abstract Lasers have become increasingly important for the successful operation and continuous optimization of particle accelerators. For beam diagnostics lasers provide the highest time and spatial resolutions for transverse and longitudinal beam profile measurements. They also allow the detection of density differences in particle beams with high dynamics ranges and permit measurements of very important machine parameters such as the momentum compaction factor and beam emittance. The development of these laser applications for accelerators is the focus of the LA3NET project funded by the EC with a €4.6 million grant. This FP7 Marie Curie Initial Training Network (ITN) will bring together more than 20 academic and industrial institutions from around the world. 17 early stage researchers (ESRs) will be recruited to the project to each work on dedicated research projects at specific partner sites. In addition, the network will organize a number of international training events. In this contribution, an overview of the broad research and training program is given with examples of 3 out of the 17 research projects.
