Manager: Prof. Dr. Omer Yavas
Project Team: Asst. Prof. Dr. Avni Aksoy, Dr. Ozlem Karslı, Engineer Burak Koç, Dr. Bora Ketenoğlu, Physics Engineer Hande Mirza (Ankara Uni.), Prof. Dr. Suat Özkorucuklu (Istanbul Uni.), Prof. Dr. İlhan Tapan, Asst. Prof. Dr. Ercan Pilicer, PhD student Ayşegül Uşun (Uludag Uni.), Prof. Dr. Haluk Denizli, Research Asst. Ali Yılmaz (Abant Izzet Baysal Uni.),   Asst. Prof. Dr. Zafer Nergiz (Nigde Uni.), Assoc. Prof. Dr. Mustafa Dogan (Baskent Uni.), Research Asst. Mert Sekerci (S. Demirel Uni.).
Project Period: 24.05.2013-24.05.2017 (4 years)
Subject and Importance: The CERN CLIC electron-positron collider with TeV energetic mass center energy is the world's largest linear collider project, planned to be aired in the 2020s and the technical design work of the plant was carried out between 2013-2017. The purpose of the project is the participation of Turkish scientists in the CLIC project, which is carried out with international collaboration, to contribute to the CLIC project in terms of bunch dynamics and bunch-beam interactions, which are very important in representation of our country and accelerator design and to carry out information and experience transfer for national accelerator projects.
