    There are described coordinating actions of the accelerator science in Europe in 2003-2009. The actions embrace basic science, as well as development and applications. The accelerator research was not coordinated in Europe at a global scale but was rather concentrated in a few centers owning large infrastructure. These centers include: CERN, DESY, GSI, INFN, LAL, PSI etc. Such coordinating actions enable a lot of positive processes including new possibilities for research centers in this country. It is much easier for them to extend, deepen or even start from the beginning their activities in the field of the accelerator technology. This field includes also free electron lasers. There are described two European framework projects CARE and EuCARD on accelerator technology, their extent and the participation of ISE WUT in them

    Get PDF
    The article describes chosen, yet key parts of newly established European, infrastructural research and development project ARIES (2017-2020) - Accelerator Research and Innovation for European Science and Society, to be realized inside the framework of the H2020 programme. Two institutions from Poland participate in ARIES – these are Warsaw University of Technology and Institute of Nuclear Chemistry and Technology. ARIES is a topical continuation of the previous infrastructural accelerator projects realized uninterruptedly since 2003 – FP6 CARE – Coordinated Accelerator Research in Europe and FP7 TIARA – Test Infrastructure and Accelerator Research Area, EuCARD – European Coordination for Accelerator Research and Development, and EuCARD2. The article is simultaneously a part of a series of papers concerning the participation of Polish doctoral students and young researchers, especially from the Warsaw University of Technology, in large European and world experiments of the discovery class, including building large research infrastructures like: FLASH and EXFEL, ESS, ITER and DEMO, IFMIF, but also satellites built by the ESA, etc. ARIES embraces, among others, the following subjects: energy efficiency and management, cost lowering, miniaturization and ultra-high field gradients, promotion innovation, industrial applications, societal implications, new materials and components, new methods of particles acceleration including laser-plasma-particles interaction, and building new generations of systems

    Enhanced European Coordination of Accelerator Research and Development – EuCARD2 – global and local impact

    Get PDF
    Wide scale, European, infrastructural research projects on accelerator science and technology are under realization since 2003. CARE project was realized during the period 2003/4-2008, and next EuCARD during 2009-2013. Now during 2014-2017 there is successfully continued EuCARD2 – Enhanced European Coordination of Accelerator R&D. European accelerator R&D community prepares next continuation of the EuCARD inside the Horizon 2020. The paper presents the work developments of EuCARD. Several institutions from Poland are participating in EuCARD: NCNR in Świerk, IChTJ, technical Universites in Łódź, Wrocław and Warsaw. Realization of the project during the last 12 years gave numerable and valuable results combined with essential modernization of the European research infrastructures. From the point of view of domestic interests, where we do not have large research infrastructures, the considerable benefits are associated with  the participation of young researchers from Poland – engineers and physicists, in building of the top research infrastructures. Due to such participation, high technologies are developed in several centres in the country. The EuCARD project organizes annual meetings summarizing periodically the R&D advances. The EuCARD AM2015 was held in Barcelona in April

    Get PDF
    The most powerful now in the world, American X-ray laser LCLS (Linac Coherent Light Source), has been working as a research and user facility  since 2009.  It is further developed to LCLS II machine at the Stanford National Accelerator Laboratory SLAC in Menlo Park CA. In a certain sense, LCLS II is a response to the EXFEL machine and a logical extension of LCLS. All these machines are light sources of the fifth generation. EXFEL is expected to open user facility in 2016, at a cost of over  1 mld Euro. LCLS II, which design started in 2010, will be operational in 2017. The lasers LCLS, LCLS II and EXFEL use SASE and SEED methods to generate light and are powered by electron linacs, LCLS by a warm one, and EXFEL by a cold one. The linacs have energies approaching 20 GeV, and are around 2 - 3 km in length. EXFEL linac uses SRF TESLA microwave cavity technology at 1,3GHz. A prototype of EXFEL was FLASH laser. SLAC Laboratory uses effectively over 50 years experience in research, building and exploitation of linear electron accelerators. In 2009, a part of the largest 3 km SLAC linac was used to build the LCLS machine. For the LCLS II machine a new infrastructure is build for two new laser beams and a number of experimental stations. A number of experts and young researchers from Poland participate in the design, construction and research of the biggest world linear and elliptical accelerators and FEL lasers like LCLS (Stanford), EXFEL (DESY) and CEBAF (JLab), and a few more. The paper concentrates on the development state-of-the-art of large laser infrastructure and its global and local impact, in the competitive world of R&D. LCLS infrastructure implications in Poland are considered

    ARIES 2018 - Infrastructure, Innovation, Outreach

    Get PDF
    This article has two outreach aims. It concisely summarizes the main research and technical efforts in the EC H2020 ARIES Integrating Activity – Accelerator Research and Innovation for European Science and Society [1] during the period 2017/2018. ARIES is a continuation of CARE, TIARA and EuCARD projects [2-3]. The article also tries to show these results as an encouragement for local physics and engineering, research and technical communities to participate actively in such important European projects. According to the author’s opinion this participation may be much bigger [4-27]. All the needed components to participate – human, material and infrastructural are there [4,7]. So why the results are not satisfying as they should be?  The major research subjects of ARIES are: new methods of particles acceleration including laser, plasma and particle beam interactions, new materials and accelerator components, building new generations of accelerators, energy efficiency and management of large accelerator systems, innovative superconducting magnets, high field and ultra-high gradient magnets,  cost lowering, system miniaturization, promotion of innovation originating from accelerator research, industrial applications, and societal implications. Two institutions from Poland participate in ARIES – these are Warsaw University of Technology and Institute of Nuclear Chemistry and Technology in Warsaw. There are not present some of the key institutes active in accelerator technology in Poland. Let this article be a small contribution why Poland, a country of such big research potential, contributes so modestly to the European accelerator infrastructural projects?   The article bases on public and internal documents of ARIES project, including the EU Grant Agreement and P1 report. The views presented in the paper are only by the author and not necessarily by the ARIES

    The International Linear Collider - A Polish perspective

    Get PDF
    The ILC is an immense e+e- machine planned since 2004  by a large international collaboration, to be potentially built in Japan [1]. The gigantic size of the whole research infrastructure, the involved human, technical and financial resources, and the pressure of new emerging and potentially soon to be competitive accelerator technologies, make the final building decision quite difficult. A vivid debate is carried on this subject globally by involved accelerator research communities. The European voice is very strong and important in this debate, and has recently been essentially refreshed by clear statements in a few official documents [2]. The final HEP European Strategy Document is just under preparation. This paper is a very modest and subjective voice in this debate originating from Poland, which around 50 researchers are present at the list of 2400 signatories for the original ILC TDR document published in 2013 [3]

    The paper is a digest of work presented during a cyclic Ph.D. student symposium on Photonics and Web Engineering WILGA 2009. The subject of WILGA are Photonics Applications in Astronomy, Communications, Industry and High-Energy Physics Experiments. WILGA is sponsored by EuCARD Project. Symposium is organized by ISE PW in cooperation with professional organizations IEEE, SPIE, PSP and KEiT PAN. There are presented mainly Ph.D. and M.Sc. theses as well as achievements of young researchers. These papers, presented in such a big number, more than 250 in some years, are in certain sense a good digest of the condition of academic research capabilities in this branch of science and technology. The undertaken research subjects for Ph.D. theses in electronics is determined by the interest and research capacity (financial, laboratory and intellectual) of the young researchers and their tutors. Basically, the condition of academic electronics research depends on financing coming from applications areas. During Wilga 2009 there were organized, and thus the paper debates, the following topical essions concerning applications of advanced electronics and photonics systems: merging of electronic systems and photonics, Internet engineering, distributed easurement systems, security in information technology, astronomy and space echnology, HEP experiments, environment protection, image processing and iometry. The paper contains also more general remarks concerning the workshops organized by and for the Ph.D. students in advanced photonics and electronics systems. WILGA Symposium used to have several dedicated sessions on EU FP6 CARE Project and now on EU FP7 EuCARD Project. Papers are presented on E-XFEL, FLASH, accelerator timing, LLRF systems and criosystems

    CERN hosted on May 2-6, 2022, the first annualmeeting of the H2020 I.FAST project to support innovation in thefield of science and technology of particle accelerators. The projecthas a completely different character from its predecessors in thisarea of research. It was approved for implementation a year agoby the EC with the highest marks. It is worth looking at whyprojects such as ARIES, I.FAST and EURO-LABS are so easilyaccepted. This alleged ease of acceptance is an appearance. Behindthe acceptance, in conditions of extremely tough competition, is theexcellent organization of the submitting community that has beendeveloped over the years, as well as the perfect, well-thought-outpreparation of the material. The author, a participant in theARIES and other EC projects in the field of particle acceleratorscience and technology, presents here, on specific examples, hissubjective opinions on how to prepare materials for high-outputprojects for the EC FP. The author hopes that these remarks maybe useful in the process of submitting research projects fromPoland in international cooperation to the EC in the best possibleway. The science and technology of particle accelerators is anexcellent area of showing such examples because it isinterdisciplinary and includes the following components: buildingof research infrastructure, applied physics, mechatronics,materials engineering, automation and robotics, electronics, ICT,innovation, cooperation with industry, and social
