Libera Workshop

The Libera Workshop is an opportunity to network with experts from the accelerator field and to explore how to optimise beam stability from injection to the end-station.


Participants will learn about the use of Libera instruments at different accelerators around the world, and obtain practical experience as well as intensive training. The workshop will focus on applications that use the Libera family of instruments – state-of-the-art instrumentation systems used for diagnostics and beam stabilisation at particle accelerators.

It is our pleasure to announce the 11th Libera Workshop, which will be held from May 27 to 29, 2015.


The slogan of the 11th Libera Workshop is “Ideas turn into instruments”. During the last two years many things have happened. We have been playing with technology, combining our expertise with the new trends in System on Chip technology.


But we have also traveled a lot. We visited, worked together and held discussions with many of you. We also explored the world outside the field of particle accelerators, and engaged in fruitful dialogue with universities and industry players.


What we gathered along the way has been incredibly valuable for us. Your comments and ideas have inspired us to define a new platform that will be an incubator for many new opportunities: this is how ideas turn into instruments!



Highlights and discussion triggers:

  • What does System on Chip technology mean for beam instrumentation.
  • Some 'personalities' of our new compact platform: Beam Loss Monitor, Single-Pass Beam Position Monitor, Bunch-by-Bunch feedback, and many more.
  • First Libera Spark results at the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF).
  • New developments and use-cases of our Platform B based products.
  • Red Pitaya a year after: what we learned.



The workshop itself will be a one-day event held on May 28. It will be preceded by training sessions and Libera instrument demonstrations on May 27 (optional attendance). Satellite meetings are planned for May 29, upon prior arrangement.





The 11th Libera Workshop will take place in Štanjel, one of the oldest settlements in the Slovenian Karst Region. It is famous for its magnificent design and the old settlement of exceptional historical and architectural value. Štanjel is known for its church, Saint Daniel and Ferrari garden too.





For more information on Libera Workshop 2015, please contact Ms. Teja Čadež Širca.
