Tobin Wins Award at International School for Linear Colliders


J. Charles Tobin, an ECE graduate student co-advised by ECE Department Chair Dr. Patrick O'Shea and Prof. Rami Kishek of the Institute for Research in Electronics and Applied Physics (IREAP), was awarded the Distinguished Performance Award at the International Accelerator School for Linear Colliders.

The International Linear Collider (ILC) is a research project aimed at giving physicists a new cosmic doorway to explore energy technology beyond the reach of today’s accelerators. The ILC, a proposed electron-positron collider, will help unlock some of the deepest mysteries in the universe about matter and energy.

The International School for Linear Colliders, which was held in Erice, Italy from Oct 1-10, 2007, was attended by 57 students from 18 different countries. The school selects graduate students from around the world to work toward the research and development of linear colliders. The eight-day program consists of lectures in accelerator engineering and physics and a final exam. Tobin, representing University of Maryland, was ranked 1st in North America and 3rd overall among the top ten students.

Tobin's primary areas of research include space-charge dominated beams and photoinjectors. He currently is working on the University of Maryland Electron Ring project.
