Student 'Praktikum: SwissFEL Science and Technology

Date Mi, 14.11.2012 - Do, 15.11.2012
Location PSI
Program The 2 day Praktikum will provide an introduction to and hands-on experience with the SwissFEL X-ray Laser Project. Test measurements will be made at the 250 MeV Test Injector.

The Praktikum will consist of three parts:

A) Introduction to X-ray Free Electron Lasers: lectures and exercises will provide an
overview of the principle of operation of an XFEL and a summary of its applications in
physics, chemistry and biology.

B) Beam characterization at the 250 MeV Injector: We will divide into small working
groups, each of which will setup the accelerator from scratch, tuning the drive laser, the
accelerating cavities and the magnets, to reach a particular working point. We will then
characterize the electron beam quality, e.g., by making a so-called “quadrupole scan”.

C) Report: Background material for the Praktikum report will be studied in advance, and the
majority of the data analysis will be performed on site. Successfully performing the
Praktikum earns 2 Credit Points.
