Workshop on
 Pulsed Power Generators and related Technologies

February 12th and 13th, 2024
Helmut Schmidt University Hamburg HSU and Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron DESY

Hosted by the Helmut Schmidt University Hamburg, this year’s annual workshop of the ISP will focus on pulsed power generators and related technologies. This workshop is intended to provide the possibility of networking within the pulsed power community and to support the scientific/technical exchange between scientists, representatives of industry and students. The frame of the workshop provides an opportunity for closer social and technical interactions than a large conference. The workshop will be accompanied by a visit of the Free-electron laser DESY Flash and the annual member meeting of the ISP.
