Accelerators, beams and particles
Systems and components for creating, manipulating and testing beams of energetic particles.
At the height of the First World War, in the trenches, German physicist Heinrich Barkhausen was eavesdropping on Allied telephone conversations. Every now and again, the Allied communications were drowned out by some strange sounds. The soldiers dubbed them “whistlers” because they sounded similar to shells flying overhead.

The efficiency of synchrotron light sources is heavily dependent on the vacuum quality within the beam lines. Small mass spectrometers (RGAs) are routinely utilized to provide real-time vacuum monitoring for confirmation of contaminant status, and the associated radiation level is a potential issue.
Hyperspectral characterization of various types of solar cells will be presented at the 42nd IEEE PVSC meeting by Laurent Lombez (IRDEP)
Photon etc has developed a hyperspectral imaging platform (IMA) for solar cell’s analysis in collaboration with IRDEP (Institute of Research and Development on Photovoltaic Energy, France).
The MEVION S250 proton therapy system at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital (RWJUH) is now treating patients, after opening on May 27, less than four weeks after the first patient was treated on the MEVION S250 at Ackerman Cancer Center.
The ESRF officially launched Phase II of its innovative renovation project, the Upgrade Programme. The highlight and major technological challenge of this second step is the creation of an ultra-bright synchrotron source with performances 100 times superior to present day synchrotrons worldwide.
The Fifth International Conference on High Power Impulse Magnetron Sputtering was held in Sheffield’s Cutlers’ Hall from 30 June to 3 July 2014.

Story from this month’s edition of Physics World…
Official Launch of Phase II of the Upgrade Programme
In 2013 we complemented our successful Linear Variable VIS Bandpass Filter with the Linear Variable NIR Bandpass Filter.
We are extremely grateful for the support of the BVC whose contribution greatly aided in the success of our workshop.
Digital issue now live
In particle accelerators often the high frequent electromagnetic field generated by special kinds of electron tubes like klystrons or IOT is used to increase the energy of a particle beam
A compact high voltage module has been designed by FuG Elektronik GmbH.
The Allectra Group has this year continued to invest in its custom design and manufacturing departments in both the UK and Germany.
Learning by doing…The power of practical science
With school students in England bracing themselves for new-style GCSE science exams that are based entirely on written tests, Physics World has teamed up with Neil Downie to put together “five amazing physics demonstrations” that highlight the value and importance of keeping experimentation at the centre of the science classroom.
