Mr. Holmes has 36 years engineering experience with over 25 years of that time dedicated to particle accelerator engineering design. He started his career working in the Advanced Energy Group of Northrop Grumman where he led various efforts to design and manufacture ion accelerator components and test cavities including a Radio Frequency Quadrupole (RFQ), and a Drift Tube Linear (DTL) accelerator as well as the RF power coupler for these cavities. More recently he worked at Advanced Energy Systems Inc. (AES) where he was responsible for the mechanical design and fabrication of many superconducting RF cavities and cryomodules for use at BNL, JLab and FRIB. This includes the BNL 704 MHz SRF gun/cryomodule, BNL 5-cell eCx ERL cavity/cryomodule, BNL-3 704 MHz 5-cell SRF cavity, JLab 2.25 GHz 3rd harmonic SRF injector cavity and the FRIB Beta 0.041 quarter wave SRF cavities. After his work at AES, he took on the role as Beamline Engineer at NSLS-II while working on the design and installation of the NYX Beamline (Beamline ID-19) in preparation for their Instrument Readiness Review. Douglas joined the BNL Collider-Accelerator Division in 2017 and transferred to EIC in of 2020.
