DITANET (DIagnostics Techniques for particle Accelerators NETwork) gets the go-ahead
DITANET, a network made up of 10 research institutes, including IRFU, and 12 industrial partners has been selected by the European Commission as part of the FP7-People programme.
The network is aimed at developing innovative diagnostics for use in particle accelerator beams. In addition, DITANET provides training for selected candidates, including courses and working periods with the various partners to help them on their way to becoming future experts in this fast growing field.
Young research scientists on three-year fixed-term contracts, meeting European criteria for Marie-Curie ITN (Initial Training Network) grants, can choose from twenty projects. IRFU will manage two projects, a profiler for high-intensity ion beams and instrumentation specially designed for klystron electron beams, in collaboration with Thales.
