The 3rd OCPA Topical Accelerator School and Workshop has held in Changxing Island, Dalian, from Aug. 4th to 9th. This topical school is organized by International Organization of Chinese Physicists and Astronomers, and Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics, CAS is the local organizer. The theme of current topical school is “Free Electron Laser and Applications”, with various topics including: FEL physics, advanced FEl topics, new concept FEL, all optical FELs, compact sources, FEl facilities, photo injectors, linear accelerator, laser and FEl, energy recovery linac, FEL beamline, and FEL applications in biology, physics and chemistry. More than 70 professors, young researcher, and graduate students attended this topical school. There are 15 senior scientists giving lectures upon invitation. More than 30 junior researchers and graduate students gave oral talks.
This 5-day topical school has given a detailed review on free electron lasers and relevant fields, and provided researchers from different disciplines a good opportunity for extensive discussions on co-operations and applications of FEL. The influences of current topical school will become even clearer in near future. (By Dongxu Dai, Guorong Wu, photos from Chunlei Xiao)
