Ryan Bodenstein

Postdoctoral Research Assistant

I am working in the FONT (Feedback On Nanosecond Timescales) group in the John Adams Institute for Accelerator Science.

I did my PhD work at the University of Virginia. My research focus was beamline characterization and tuning at Jefferson Lab. My dissertation can by found here: http://casa.jlab.org/publications/CASA_PhDs/Bodenstein_Dissertation.pdf.

After finishing, I moved to South Korea for two years, working as a Research Fellow at the Rare Isotope Science Project (RISP), part of the Institute for Basic Science (IBS). There, I was part of the beam physics and injector team, where I worked to design the low energy beam transport line. This work is described in part in the following articles:

"DESIGN STATUS OF THE RISP TEST FACILITY LEBT" from IPAC 2014:

"Designing a test facility LEBT for RISP" from Journal of the Korean Physical Society:

I am currently involved in beamline simulations of the CLIC and ILC systems using the codes PLACET and GUINEA-PIG. More specifically, I am investigating the luminosity recovery achieved by the use of feedback systems in the CLIC and ILC designs. I am also involved in single and two-beam tuning of the CLIC beam delivery system.
