Rare earths for permanent magnets: blessing or curse?
Although permanent magnets can significantly reduce the energy consumption of accelerators, their use of rare earths requires best practices, as discussed by experts at the latest I.FAST workshop.
I.FAST promotes eight innovation projects in accelerator technologies
With a funding of up to 200 kEUR each, the projects will contribute to improve the sustainability of particle accelerator technologies.
First 3D-printing of crucial component to bring accelerators closer to society
The first additive manufacturing of a critical accelerator component paves the way toward more affordable and versatile particle accelerators.
Bringing students and experts together around environmental applications of accelerators
The I.FAST project’s yearly student challenge was held this summer, exploring environmental and societal applications of accelerator technology
I.FAST announces Academia-Industry Exchange Programme
The programme offers the opportunity for a Company to send an engineer or technician for one or several visits to one of the I.FAST Laboratories and for a I.FAST Laboratory to send a scientist, engineer or technician to a Company for one or several visits
I.FAST under the spotlights at IPAC’22
As many as four oral presentations stemming from I.FAST innovative activities were given at this prestigious particle accelerator conference
The future of accelerators brings laboratories and industry together at CERN
In early May, the first annual meeting of the I.FAST project brought together the main European players in the particle accelerator sector to discuss the latest innovations
European projects join forces to investigate the next generation of ion therapy magnets
Two European projects, HITRIplus and I.FAST, have obtained funding to work on different aspects of superconducting magnets for medical accelerators
Unravelling the mysteries of vacuum arcs – 9th MeVArc held successfully
In Spring 2021, the 9th workshop dedicated to vacuum arcs MeVArc took place online – it aims at better understanding how electric discharges occur in vacuum.
I.FAST project to position additive manufacturing for accelerator technologies
Additive manufacturing is at the heart of industry 4.0. Recognising its potential, the I.FAST project, funded by the European Union Horizon 2020 program, has the objective of promoting it within the advanced accelerator technologies.
