Particle Accelerator Physics Laboratory
Engines of Discovery
Particle accelerators play an important role in high energy physics, materials and life sciences. They are used to create a very special state of matter — beams of particles (protons, electrons, photons, neutrons, muons, neutrinos etc.). Medical applications of accelerators include radiotherapy, production of radioactive isotopes, hadron therapy and bio-imaging.
Welcome to LPAP André!
The 30th April, André Donadon Servelle, part of the Beam Machine Interaction (BMI) section at CERN, successfully passed his candidacy exam at EPFL, to begin the PhD the 1st June. The project of his PhD, called ‘Merging Montecarlo worlds: A new Framework for Accelerator Simulations’, looks to develop a framework to bridge the Montecarlo codes (…)
