The Advanced Electronics Group developes electronic circuits, signal processing systems and laboratory measurement techniques for particle accelerators. Our current concentration is on techniques for controlling coherent instabilities in particle accelerators and storage rings. These include GHz bandwidth feedback control systems which sense motion of charged particles, 500 megasample/sec digital signal processing systems and GHz bandwidth high power circuits and antennas which apply correction signals to the particle beam.

Other efforts include particle beam control for future linear colliders, and in the development of low group delay processing channels for wideband feedback systems. The technology component centers on electronic and electro-optic flexible signal processing channels with GHz bandwidths.
