The institute Accelerator Physics is looking for:

PhD Student (m/f/d) - Accelerator Physics - Commissioning of an SRF Photoinjector for the Energy-Recovery Linac bERLinPro

Reference No.: FG 2018/15

The Helmholtz Zentrum Berlin für Materialien und Energie GmbH (HZB) operates one of the world´s most advanced Synchrotron Light Sources (BESSY II) in the VUV to soft x-ray range, as well as the low energy storage ring Metrology Light Source (MLS) of the Physikalisch Technische Bundesanstalt.

BERLinPro, a 50 MeV electron energy ERL, is currently being constructed as a test facility, to investigate technologies crucial to the realization of future large scale projects. An important part of BERLinPro is the superconducting radio frequency photoelectron source, which is to generate an electron beam with high average current and low emittance. In close collaboration with the Institute for Superconducting Radio Frequency Systems and Technology (as well as other national and international collaboration partners), the Institute of Accelerator Physics works on the development and optimization of this electron source for BERLinPro.
