  • Coordinate and monitor WP4 activities
  • Organise and co-organise workshops related to the energy efficiency of particle accelerators perform specific studies on these topics:
    • Develop a very high efficiency klystron with adiabatic bunching
    • Investigate and document how to optimise the efficiency of neutron production targets
    • Evaluate schemes to operate pulse magnets including energy recovery
    • Improve acceleration in superconducting structures with low losses
