Book Description

May 5, 2008 3527407413 978-3527407415 2nd Edition, Updated and Expanded
This indispensable work offers a broad synoptic description of beams, applicable to a wide range of other devices, such as low-energy focusing and transport systems and high-power microwave sources. The monograph develops the material from the basic principles in a systematic way and discusses the underlying physics and validity of theoretical relationships, design formulas and scaling laws. Assumptions and approximations are clearly indicated throughout. This new, revised and updated edition has 10% additional content, and features, among others, a new chapter on beam physics research from 1993 to 2007, significant enhancement of chapter 6 on emittance variation, updated references and color image plates.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Although particle accelerators are the book's main thrust, it offers a broad synoptic description of beams which applies to a wide range of other devices such as low-energy focusing and transport systems and high-power microwave sources. Develops material from first principles, basic equations and theorems in a systematic way. Assumptions and approximations are clearly indicated. Discusses underlying physics and validity of theoretical relationships, design formulas and scaling laws. Features a significant amount of recent work including image effects and the Boltzmann line charge density profiles in bunched beams. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Back Cover

Most advanced accelerator applications require beams with high-power and high brightness, which are determined by space-charge effects at low energy. Examples are the giant High Energy Physics Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN, to be launched in 2008, and the International Linear Collider (ILC) being considered to follow the LHC. Other examples are Spallation Neutron Sources, the proposed Heavy Ion Inertial Fusion driver for energy production, Free Electron Lasers, and Muon Colliders.
This revised and updated monograph offers a broad synoptic description of beams in accelerators and other devices with negligible to strong space charge effects. The book develops material in a systematic way and discusses the underlying physics and validity of theoretical relationships, design formulas and scaling laws. Assumptions and approximations are clearly indicated throughout.
The new edition of Theory and Design of Charged Particle Beams has significant additional content, which covers experiments, theory, and simulation in beam physics research since 1993, when the first edition was published. It includes the University of Maryland Electron Ring for studying space-charge dominated beams in rings and re-circulators.

From the Contents:

4.0 out of 5 stars ingenious June 19, 2004
Format:Hardcover
Particle accelerators are well described in this book. One of their biggest objectives is to maximise the beam luminosity, so that when the beam is incident on another beam, or a target, the maximal number of reactions can happen. But the problem is that if the beam consists of charged particles, then these are usually of the same charge. Hence space charge effects can act to force the beam apart, either longitudinally or transversely. Neither is desirable.

Reiser describes many beam focusing techniques that have been developed over the decades to circumvent this problem. Quite impressive ingenuity. Some of the best experimental physicists have gone into this field, and their efforts are well summarised here.

Other non-accelerator applications are described. Though perhaps the most interesting to some of you have to be omitted by necessity. These are military applications, where particle beams might be used as antimissile defenses. (Star Wars.)
