About Us

The Manchester Accelerator Group is involved in many aspects of accelerator physics research and participates in numerous international collaborations. The group specialises in collimator design, cavity design, FFAG design, beam dynamics, and wakefield studies. The group is involved in LHCCLICILCATFEMMACONFORMFLASH, and NLS.

The group is part of the Cockcroft Institute, and has a close relationship with the Particle Physics and Nuclear Physics Groups, and with the Dalton Institute.

The group conducts research on high energy -colliders and light sources- through to low energy -radioactive ion beams and medical applications. We have strong links with the particle and nuclear physics groups.
