Accelerator Technologie

Accelerator research at LAS concentrates on two areas: the development of novel, compact, superconducting insertion devices geared towards 3rd and 4th generation synchrotron radiation sources, and the conception and design of novel long-wavelength radiation sources for the production of intense coherent synchrotron radiation (CSR) in the far-infrared and Terahertz region. To complement these research fields we also investigate new beam diagnostics technologies for ultrashort electron bunches, ultrashort light pulses and Terahertz radiation.


Superconductive Undulator Technologies

The work group “Superconductive undulator technologies” is a subdivision of the Laboratory for the Application of Synchrotron radiation (LAS).



Coherent Terahertz Radiation

The strong scientific case for THz radiation is illustrated by many applications in various fields such as solid state physics, biology and nano technology. The THz region lies above the frequencies of traditional electronics but below the range of optical and infrared generators.
