WP10: Advanced accelerator technologies

Objectives

  • Define strategic directions for the use of Additive Manufacturing (AM) technologies on accelerator applications
  • Identification of AM strategies that can be adopted to repair parts
  • Develop the design approach and test relevant properties of AM-manufactured RF cavities
  • Build facilities for photon stimulated desorption (PSD) yield measurement on beamlines
  • Develop Machine Learning (ML) predictive algorithms to diagnose and protect high power accelerators
  • Develop novel electric-field sensors to address new challenges in fast time response beam instrumentation
