Ronnie Hoekstra (ARCNL group leader) received EU funding for his work on the dynamics of the electron beam driving an X-ray light source. The grant was awarded to the consortium CompactLight of which VU and ARCNL are partners. CompactLight aims to advance the development of X-ray FEL sources across Europe and beyond by making the sources more cost efficient. They intend to achieve this by combining new and innovative accelerator technologies.
ARCNL is a public-private partnership between the Netherlands Foundation of Scientific Research Institutes (NWO-I), the University of Amsterdam, VU University Amsterdam and the semiconductor equipment manufacturer ASML. Ronnie Hoekstra is a professor at the RUG and associated with VU University and ARCNL via a part-time appointment.
