Photocathode Physics for Photoinjectors


Photocathode Physics for Photoinjectors
October 17-19, 2016
Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility
Newport News, VA


The P3 organizing committee is pleased to announce that Jefferson Laboratory will be hosting the next Photocathode Physics for Photoinjectors (P3) Workshop, October 17th-19th 2016. This will be the fourth workshop of the extremely successful series that began in 2010 at Brookhaven National Laboratory.

Photocathode research remains a vibrant and critical field for future accelerators. The last few years have seen significant progress in a number of exciting areas such as realization of new photocathode devices, better understanding of physics and material properties related to photoemission, as well as delivering bright, high charge beams from photoinjectors.

This 3-day workshop at Jefferson Laboratory will explore the current state of the art in accelerator photocathodes, from both a theoretical and a materials science perspective. We aim to establish directions for future research and identify opportunities for collaboration within the community.

The agenda will remain a work in progress until much closer to the workshop date. The organizers envision a format that will closely follow the structure of previous workshops. There will be a mix of invited talks, discussion sessions, and informal contributed talk. Suggestions to the organizing committee with specific topics to be included are welcome.

Participants are encouraged to bring posters to highlight the related work from their home institutions for display at a reception poster session. Additionally, everyone is welcome to bring 3-slide mini-talks on topics of interest, both to explore new ideas and to stimulate discussion.

We are looking forward to seeing you at Jefferson Lab this October!
