Machine Physics Group at DESY

The members of the accelerator physics group (MPY) contribute to the mission of DESY: The design, construction and operation of accelerators for the generation of high energy beams of charged particles for the research with synchrotron radiation.

They work in various fields of accelerator physics like accelerator optics, beam dynamics, spin polarization of accelerated particle beams, free electron laser physics, calculation and measurement of wake fields and accelerator R&D.
