Title Accelerator Optimization within the oPAC Project
Abstract Many of today's most advanced research infrastructures rely on the use of particle accelerators. This includes for example synchrotron light sources and free electron lasers (FELs), high intensity hadron accelerators for the generation of exotic beams and spallation sources, as well as much smaller accelerator facilities for precision experiments and fundamental studies. Moreover, accelerators are very important for many commercial applications, such as in medicine, for studying and treatment of materials, lithography and security, for exmaple scanners at airports or cargo stations. The full potential of any accelerator can only be exploited if the performance of all its parts are continuously optimized, if numerical tools are made available that allow for developing and improving advanced machine designs and if methods are developed in partnership between the academic and industry sectors to monitor beams with ever higher intensities and brightness, shorter pulse lengths or smaller dimensions. This contribution presents the R&D and training program of the oPAC project.
