Theo Murphy international scientific meeting organised by Professor Bernhard Hidding, Dr Mark Hogan, Dr Ralph Assmann, Professor Patric Muggli and Professor James Rosenzweig.
Electric fields in plasmas waves, driven by relativistic particle beams, can accelerate particles to tens of Giga-electron-volt energies on metre-scale distances. Recent conceptual and experimental breakthroughs have ushered in a worldwide effort which may be transformative for accelerators and their applications for natural, life and material sciences. This meeting will discuss emerging trends and prospects of this new kind of compact accelerators.
The schedule of talks and speaker biographies can be found below. Speaker abstracts will be available closer to the meeting date. Recorded audio of the presentations will be available on this page after the meeting has taken place.
