The IONS Balvanyos 2017 Conference will take place from 25-28 July 2017 in Balvanyos, Romania.

The IONS Balvanyos 2017 Conference is supported by the International OSA Network of Students (IONS®) program, organised for the first time in Romania with the support of The Optical Society (OSA), The International Society for Optics and Photonics (SPIE), the Young Minds Project of the European Physical Society (EPS), and the National Institute for Laser, Plasma and Radiation Physics (INFLPR). IONS Balvanyos 2017 will be co-hosted by the Institute of Radiophysics and Electronics (IRE) OSA Student Chapter, Kharkiv, Ukraine.

The conference includes a broad variety of topics, such as:

  • Laser and Ultrafast Phenomena
  • Optics, Photonics and Optoelectronics
  • Micro- and Nanotechnologies
  • Advanced Materials and Thin Films
  • Lasers in Life Sciences
  • Quantum Computing and Information

Triangular Current Profile for Future High-energy Accelerators

Beam-driven, collinear wakefield acceleration is one of the most promising methods proposed for the next generation of high-energy physics accelerators. This method has some similarities to a transformer where the wakefield plays the role of the voltage. A high-current drive beam experiences a low wakefield when it passes a media (e.g. plasma, dielectric structure, etc), and this is transformed into a high wakefield to accelerate a trailing low-current witness beam.
