International Coherent Amplification Network


"We are aiming at studying a novel laser concept for High Energy Particle acceleration, known as CAN for Coherent Amplification Network
that would guarantee high peak power and high average powers while exhibiting high efficiency, >30%. The approach is based on fibre
The proposed technical evaluation will be performed by combining the expertise, know-how, and knowledge of a team of world leading
experts coming from different horizons of optical science, technology and industry, including femtosecond fibre optics, instrumental optics,
astronomy, manufacturing, and marketing. Although our primary target application will be particle acceleration for high-energy physics, our
approach will have direct bearing on other fields. It will be done through conferences, workshops and meetings among the participants.
Alongside those events mixing the laser and high energy physics communities, the ICAN project aims to identify and approach the Funding
Agencies that may contribute to the construction of an infrastructure based on the ICAN concept.
The final outcome of the study will include an implementation plan and a road map pointing out the most significant technical roadblocks,
proposed solutions, manufacturing methods, and lobbying strategies to increase international membership, awareness, market study and
business plan."
