Physics of Particle Accelerators

Physics of Particle Accelerators

Prof. Dr. Ulrich Schramm, Dr. Andreas Wagner

Dates: Tuesday, 5. DS (14:50-16:20), REC/B214/H  (no teaching April 18th)
Exercises: Thursday, 4. DS (13:00-14:30, even weeks), starts 20.4.2017, ASB/328/H

The lecture will cover the following topics:

Particle accelerators:linear accelerators, circular accelerators, storage rings, cyclotrons, betatrons, synchrotrons
Particle dynamics: ion optics, matrix formalism, beam dynamics, beam cooling
Secondary beams: light sources, radioactive beams
Advanced concepts: laser particle acceleration
During the lecture we will frequently present applications and realisations of accelerators.
