ASTeC, Daresbury Laboratory
Gun Commissioning April to June
Comparison and benchmarking of beam dynamics code for injectors - ASTRA and GPT
Confirming suitability of TBA arc design chosen for 4GLS:
Machine Commissioning 3
Confirming 4 dipole chicane bunch compression scheme:
Measurements to verify start to end simulations results
First case of complete S2E modelling of an ERL with a FEL and energy recovery
Operation of 2 K cryosystem - vital to operation of 4GLS
As an R&D exercise NOT as a user facility.
Compton backscattering X-ray source
Time resolved X-ray diffraction studies aimed at probing the mechanisms of shock compression of matter on sub picosecond (ps) timescales.
THz beamline and a tissue culture facility.
To use the ultrahigh intensity, broadband THz radiation for the study of biological systems.
