Tenth International Conference on Charged Particle Optics


We are pleased to announce that the tenth International Conference on Charged Particle Optics, CPO-10, hosted by Michigan State University, will take place in Key West, Florida, USA, from October 17 to 21, 2018.

The series of conferences on charged particle optics evolved from the realization that there is great overlap in techniques and tools among three until then somewhat separate communities using charged particle optics techniques: The fields of accelerator optics, spectrometer optics, and electron optics. Beginning in 1980, the first three meetings in the series were organized by Hermann Wollnik, Karl Brown, and Peter Hawkes, each a representative of one of these fields. Since then, the CPO conferences have continued their role as a bridge between these disciplines, and a total of nine conferences on Charged Particle Optics have been held:

1980 Giessen, Germany
1986 Albuquerque, NM, USA
1990 Toulouse, France
1994 Tsukuba, Japan
1998 Delft, Netherlands
2002 College Park, MD, USA
2006 Cambridge, England
2010 Singapore
2014 Brno, Czech Republic

Now nearly four decades after the first meeting, it is clear that the formula is as attractive as ever. In the spirit of continuing to bridge three related fields, we are now launching the tenth CPO conference, which will showcase a balanced program with much original material in each of the three areas. We welcome you to Key West and look forward to meeting all of you at the conference.
