COLLABORATIONS

The UK groups working on laser- and plasma-wakefield accelerators participate in the following collaborations:

EuPRAXIA

EuPRAXIA is a proposal for a new European particle accelerator research infrastructure based on novel plasma concepts and laser technology. The concept was established over four years in a unique collaboration of 41 laboratories within a Horizon 2020 design study funded by the European Union.

AWAKE

The Advanced Wakefield (AWAKE) Experiment is an international project being carried out at CERN. AWAKE aims to demonstrate the acceleration of electrons in a plasma wakefield driven by a proton beam.
