Eric Prebys and collaborators receive $2.5 million to support particle accelerator research
Eric Prebys, Professor of
Physics and Director of the UC Davis Crocker Nuclear Laboratory, is
leading a project to develop a new tool based on synthetic diamond
semiconductors that will be used to evaluate the performance of particle
accelerators and X-Ray Free-Electron Lasers, known as XFELs.
Collaborating institutions for the advanced detectors project include UC
Irvine, UC Santa Barbara, UC Santa Cruz, Los Alamos National Laboratory
and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. "This project leverages the
unique expertise at each of the collaborating universities and labs,
particularly the expertise in diamond detector development at Los
Alamos" said Prebys. "I'm very excited to be working with these
institutions and this group of collaborators."
