Borne out of twentieth–century science and technology, the field of RF (radio frequency) linear accelerators has made significant contributions to basic research, energy, medicine, and national defense. As we advance into the twenty–first century, the linac field has been undergoing rapid development as the demand for its many applications, emphasizing high–energy, high–intensity, and high–brightness output beams, continues to grow. RF Linear Accelerators is a textbook that is based on a US Particle Accelerator School graduate–level course that fills the need for a single introductory source on linear accelerators. The text provides the scientific principles and up–to–date technological aspects for both electron and ion linacs. This second edition has been completely revised and expanded to include examples of modern RF linacs, special linacs and special techniques as well as superconducting linacs. In addition, problem sets at the end of each chapter supplement the material covered. The book serves as a must–have reference for professionals interested in beam physics and accelerator technology.

Thomas P. Wangler received his B.S. degree in physics from Michigan State University, and his Ph.D. degree in physics and astronomy from the University of Wisconsin. After postdoctoral appointments at the University of Wisconsin and Brookhaven National Laboratory, he joined the staff of Argonne National Laboratory in 1966, working in the fields of experimental high–energy physics and accelerator physics. He joined the Accelerator Technology Division at Los Alamos National Laboratory in 1979, where he specialized in high–current beam physics and linear accelerator design and technology. In 2007 he joined the faculty at Michigan State University, where he holds a joint appointment as Professor of Physics at the National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory and in the Department of Physics and Astronomy. Dr. Wangler is a Los Alamos National Laboratory Fellow and a Fellow of the American Physical Society.
