The John Adams Institute accelerator laboratory is a large flexible space (80 square metres currently with a further 110 square metres) for the design, construction and test of accelerator components before moving to the accelerator for commissioning. We have mock ups of systems deployed at PETRAIII, DESY, Hamburg, the ATF2, KEK, Japan and diamond light source. The laboratory contains all the best equipment necessary for radio frequency test including
- Fast signal acquisition (upto 8 GigaSamples per second)
- Spectrum analysers
- Network analysers
- Vector signal generation
The central area of the laboratory is devoted to construction of optical systems before installation at appropriate accelerator facility.
