Missions AND ActivitIEs

Within the Accelerator Research Department, the main tasks of the Modeling & Simulation group are as follows:

  •  general design of particle accelerators and associated systems,
  •  beam dynamics simulations,
  •  design, modeling and simulation of specific accelerator components,
  •  development of new computational tools.


Accelerator design

  • Design of linear accelerators (linac), with specific expertise on hadron superconducting linacs
  • Design of beam transport lines
  • Construction monitoring and beam commissioning

Modeling & simulation activities

Project coordination

  • Coordination of projects or work packages for accelerators in design or construction phase, or for innovative R&D activities
  • Expertise in European projects management

Teaching, valorization, communication

  • Teaching activities at University Paris-Sud (Master2 APIM)
  • Coaching of PhDs and students
  • Communications in seminars & training courses (IN2P3 schools, CAS...)
  • Reviews for projects and articles (Phys.Rev. STAB, NIM-A...)
  • About 20 annual publications
