High Power Targets Group

The High Power Targets Group (HPTG) was established to help overcome the immense challenges involved in designing reliable targets for multi-megawatt particle accelerators. Working at the critical boundary between engineering and particle physics, the group have contributed to the analysis, design and manufacture of target-related technology for many large international accelerator-based facilities. Recent projects include: 

The HPTG has expertise (link opens in a new window) in particle transport simulation, finite element analysis and computational fluid dynamics.
