Graduate Student Paul Maggi has been selected to attend the 2-week United States Particle Accelerator School (USPAS)
Congratulations! Graduate Student Paul Maggi has been selected to attend the 2-week United States Particle Accelerator School (USPAS) at Old Dominion University in January 2015. His selection includes an award of funds to cover registration and lodging. The USPAS provides national graduate-level educational programs in the science of particle beams and their associated accelerator technologies. The USPAS course will enhance Paul's PhD project, which is to develop a real-time electron energy spectrometer for use as a quality assurance, commissioning, and research tool for radiation therapy. The knowledge gained through the school will provide guidance for more effective utilization of the spectrometer, including development of methods to tune the operating performance of linear accelerators.
