138. AUTOMATING PARTICLE ACCELERATOR SUBSYSTEMS
Name: Gregory Matthew Mills
Grad Year: 2016
Our research focuses on black-box optimization techniques for automated tuning and process maintenance of particle accelerator subsystems. We present results concerning automation of the ion source, where the particle beam is created. Automation of this subsystem directly results in a higher quality beam and allows the particle accelerator to be online more often.
