AWAKE PhD Studentship
We at UCL are one of the leading groups within the AWAKE
collaboration. Our principle contribution to the experiment is the
development of the AWAKE spectrometer which we will use to measure the
energy spectrum of accelerated electrons. We are also developing
possible applications of the AWAKE scheme to future particle physics
experiments. The PhD studentship will focus on one or more more of
Development and running of AWAKE spectrometer in order to measure the
energy spectrum of accelerated electrons.
Design and development of AWAKE spectrometer for AWAKE Run 2, with
possible electron energies of 10 GeV.
Design and development of physics case for future applications of
AWAKE scheme to accelerate electrons to high energy.
Work on the spectrometer will involve all aspects from design,
development, calibration and ultimately data analysis and publication
of results. This would involve spending significant time at CERN,
based there for at least one year. Development of the future
programme will involve simulation and prototype testing. This will
also require regular visits to CERN and other collaborating institutes.
