Organisation Deutsches Electronen-Synchrotron (DESY)
Country Germany 
Sector Academic/University 
PI Contribution This VI is aimed at research on plasma wakefield acceleration of highly relativistic electrons. It brings together the leading accelerator centres to address topics at the forefront of accelerator research. The VI will enhance the prospects of the field of plasma-based acceleration by building on the pioneering breakthrough results of the partners and on the initial steps that have been taken recently in establishing it as a comprehensive research topic in Hamburg. The activities of the VI will be centred in particular on the FLASHForward plasma acceleration experiment performed at a dedicated beamline at FLASH-2 facility which is now under construction. The VI will bring together leading accelerator centres and institutes - DESY and University of Hamburg, Germany, Lawrence Berkley National Laboratory (LBNL) and SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory (SLAC), USA, and John Adams Institute for Accelerator Science (JAI), UK. The European centre for particles physics CERN, and the Max-Planck-Institute in Munich (Heisenberg Institute) will be associated institutes in the programme of the VI. Two more groups have joined the VI as associate members since the original proposal, namely the groups from INFN at Frascati National Laboratories and the UCLA group in the United States. The JAI will bring in its expertise in plasma acceleration, plasma channels, diagnostics development, computation.
Collaborator Contribution The Helmholtz VI award will enable us to undertake an exciting 5-years experimental programme benefiting from unique facilities at the partner labs, particularly DESY, and also LBNL and SLAC, as well as from pioneering expertise in lasers and plasma acceleration of the University of Hamburg and John Adams Institute, to make significant progress in the task of accelerating bunches of particles with good beam quality to high energies.
Impact The HZ VI is just starting. We are finalizing the research program right now.

Title Charged particle beam targets 
Description An apparatus comprises a charged particle beam source and a target (1) for a charged particle beam. The target comprises a concave outer surface which is at least a segment of a cylinder (2) having a periodically structured surface (4). The charged particle beam is directed parallel to the axis of the cylinder (2), with the distance of the charged particle beam from the surface being less than or equal to twice the period of the periodically structured surface (4) in a direction perpendicular to the charged particle beam. The width of the charged particle beam in a direction perpendicular to the charged particle beam and parallel to the outer surface of the target is less than twice the period of the periodically structured surface (4) in a direction perpendicular to the charged particle beam.

Title X-ray generation 
Description An apparatus for generating x-rays includes an electron beam generator and a first device arranged to apply an RF electric field to accelerate the electron beam from the generator. A photon source is arranged to provide photons to a zone to interact with the electron beam from the first device so as to generate x-rays via inverse-Compton scattering. A second device is arranged to apply an RF electric field to decelerate the electron beam after it has interacted. The first and second devices are connected by RF energy transmission means arranged to recover RF energy from the decelerated electron beam as it passes through the second device and transfer the recovered RF energy into the first device.

Description Curiosity Carnival 
Form Of Engagement Activity A talk or presentation
Part Of Official Scheme? No
Geographic Reach Regional
Primary Audience Schools
Results and Impact On 29th September, Lucy Martin (JAI, Oxford) and Sophie Bashforth (JAI, RHUL) performed the 'Accelerate!' show for the Curiosity Carnival, Oxford's version of 'European Researchers Night'. Lucy and Sophie report on their experience:

The Curiosity Carnival was a fantastic event to be part of, and performing the Accelerate! show in the Museum of Natural History was a lot of fun, even if maneuvering beach balls and hydrogen balloons past the queues of people waiting to get inside wasn't easy!

The show aims to convey the basic recipe behind a particle accelerator: Particles, Acceleration, Control, Collision and Detection. The basic concepts are illustrated using a range of demonstrations, from liquid nitrogen to demonstrate superconductors to plasma balls lighting fluorescent bulbs to show wave based acceleration. The aim is to get as many members of the audience involved as possible and to leave the audience with the idea that accelerators aren't only used for particle physics.

We gave the show at 9pm, where audience members made their way to the lecture theatre past stalls representing hundreds of different areas of research in Oxford. Our audience were mainly adults due to the time of the day, but although the show is more usually presented to children we didn't change the format and still included a large amount of audience participation. It was great to see the audience gradually become more involved, shouting out answers to questions, and "accelerating" beach balls across the room seemed to go down just as well with adults as with children!
