Dean's Fund for Student Development 2018 - Summer Internship at CERN

Pablo Arrutia Sota - Summer Internship at CERN 2018

Pablo Arrutia Sota Internship - Beam Dynamics Studies of a Fast Dump System in the CERN Proton Synchrotron (June - August 2018)
CERN (European Center for Nuclear Research) is a world leading institution in the field of Accelerator and Particle Physics. As the complex pushes for higher energies in order to explore the frontier of particle physics, constant updates are required in their chain of particle accelerators.  My project consisted on exploring different design options for the Proton Synchrotron dump system, a combination of magnets inside the accelerator that aims to stop the circulating beam of protons in case of a potential instability is detected. I worked at the Beam Transfer Physics section in the Accelerator Beam Transfer group, as part of the CERN Summer Student Program. My study yielded a couple interesting design ideas that could potentially improve the current dump system and reduce the  levels of radiation that are now produced. It also outlined future lines of research that would help gain further insight on the topic.
