At the request of the Department of Energy - Office of High Energy Physics, we are developing a community-driven Strategic Roadmap for Accelerator and Beam Physics thrust of the HEP General Accelerator R&D (GARD) program.  To solicit community input to the roadmap , two preparatory workshops are being convened, at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory on December 9-10, 2019 and at Fermilab on March 12-13, 2020. 

The goal of the workshops is to identify the key Accelerator and Beam Physics (ABP) needs to fulfill OHEP’s GARD mission and to develop a decadal roadmap for thrust research activities that OHEP could support. 

At the request of the Department of Energy - Office of High Energy Physics, we are developing a community-driven Strategic Roadmap for Accelerator and Beam Physics thrust of the HEP General Accelerator R&D (GARD) program.  To solicit community input to the roadmap , two preparatory workshops will be convened, at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory on December 9-10, 2019 and in the Chicago area in March 2020. 

The goal of the workshops is to identify the key Accelerator and Beam Physics (ABP) needs to fulfill OHEP’s GARD mission and to develop a decadal roadmap for thrust activities that OHEP could support. 

The four ABP grand challenges are:

  • Grand challenge #1 (beam intensity):  How do we increase beam intensities by orders of magnitude?

  • Grand challenge #2 (beam quality): How do we increase beam phase-space density by orders of magnitude, towards quantum degeneracy limit?

  • Grand challenge #3 (beam control): How do we control the beam distribution down to the level of individual particles?

  • Grand challenge #4 (beam prediction): How do we develop predictive “virtual particle accelerators”?

In addition to these grand challenges, other equally important ABP missions are associated with the overall DOE HEP missions:

  • Advance the physics of accelerators and beams to enable future accelerators.

  • Develop conventional and advanced accelerator concepts and tools to disrupt existing costly technology paradigms in coordination with other GARD thrusts.

  • Guide and help to fully exploit science at the HEP GARD beam facilities and operational accelerators.

  • Educate and train future accelerator physicists.
