  The CLIC drive beam decelerator requires 41,848 quadrupoles along its 42km length. In response to concerns over the heat load and operating costs of electromagnet systems, ASTeC in collaboration with CERN is developing adjustable permanent magnet-based quadrupoles. This novel design concept uses moving permanent magnets to adjust the quadrupole strength over a wide operating range. The design has focused not just on achieving the field strength and quality required but has also tried to make the design well suited to mass production, as the CLIC project requires 50 magnets to be completed every day for three years. Two permanent magnet quadrupole families have been designed, for the low and high energy ends of the decelerator respectively. We present the current status of the project, including construction and magnetic measurements of the first prototype.

  Recent UK government funding has facilitated the implementation of a unique accelerator test facility which can provide enabling infrastructures targeted for the development and testing of novel and compact accelerator technologies, specifically through partnership with industry and aimed at addressing applications for medicine, health, security, energy and industrial processing. The infrastructure provision on the Daresbury Science and Innovation Campus (DSIC) will permit research into areas of accelerator technologies which have the potential to revolutionise the cost, compactness and efficiency of such systems. The main element of the infrastructure will be a high performance and flexible electron beam injector facility, feeding customised state-of-the-art testing enclosures and associated support infrastructure. The facility operating parameters and implementation status will be described, along with primary areas of commercialised technology development opportunities.
