WP6: Novel particle accelerators concepts and technologies


  • Define a roadmap towards low-energy and high-energy physics applications
  • Organise the biannual European Advanced Accelerator Concepts workshop (EAAC)
  • Develop innovative targets for laser-plasma acceleration
  • Demonstrate improved beam features with the new targets
  • Develop a new passive system to improve beam-pointing stability
  • Define solutions to stabilize beam profile in the focal spot and ensure a shot-to-shot stability of the Strehl ratio
