Research scientist as PhD student in the field of digital voltage generators for particle accelerators

The Coburg University of Applied Sciences is looking for a

Research scientist in the field of applied physics

to start as soon as possible.

There is a PhD opportunity as part of the third-party funded project DISWAG (Digital Soft Square Wave Generator for Particle Accelerators). In medicine, small cyclotrons are compact generators for short-lived radioisotopes. Typical voltage generators used for this purpose have a fixed frequency due to the electrical resonance principle. This, combined with limited variability in the magnetic field, leads to a tight binding to certain materials or isotopes per generator. DISWAG is intended to replace the typical fixed-frequency, analog or electron beam tube-generated sinusoidal acceleration voltage for particle accelerators with a digitally controllable, rectangular one. The aim is to enable a multi-isotope compact system with a dynamically adjustable accelerator frequency..
