Accelerators, Photocathodes, Beam Dynamics

Research Focus

The main topics in my research are photoemission sources and beam dynamics in accelerators. Presently, my group concentrates on the production of high brightness electron beams and their applications such as ultrafast imaging of molecules, and providing the necessary beams for particle and nuclear physics. The group pushes the state-of-the-art of photocathodes for accelerators as well as for high-energy detectors. Computationally, our interests include modeling the physics of photoemission, intense beam dynamics, and novel optimization methods of accelerators both at the design and the operation stages.
