Elettra Sincrotrone Trieste and the Paul Scherrer Institut (VIlligen - Switzerland) have a decades-long tradition of cooperation in the field of particle accelerators. At present, both laboratories have advanced projects to upgrade their synchrotron light sources, for the realisation of the fourth-generation sources Elettra 2.0 and SLS 2.0. A framework agreement has been concluded that provides for collaborations in the fields of superconducting magnets and magnetic measurements, power converters for magnets and kickers for multibunch feedback. A collaboration is also active in the development of high-gradient accelerator structures, implemented with innovative construction techniques for the FERMI linac.
The 'Elettra and Paul Scherrer Institut Workshop' was organised and held in Trieste at the NH Hotel on 10-11 November 2022 in order to assess the progress of these collaborations and explore further potential for expand to other areas.
The workshop was attended by 32 experts in the various fields involved in the collaborations, 12 of whom came from the Swiss laboratory. During the intense and fruitful discussions, the foundations were laid for the next collaborations between the two facilities, also in view of the construction and commissioning phases of the new sources.
