This first rigorous quantum treatment of charged particle beams in accelerators describes the design of a number of common passive and active accelerator components. In addition, different types of ion sources are characterized in terms of beam emittance, currents and profiles.
To give beginners in the field a good understanding of the techniques involved, field computational analysis of real beam components is demonstrated using standard beam optics and field computational codes and the transfer matrix approach is used to calculate design parameters of beam optical components. Data and geometry files supporting these examples are available as supplementary material online. The students′ grasp of these theoretical and numerical methods is reinforced by specific problem sections, with a solutions manual also available online. The final step – applying the tools learned from earlier chapters to actual hardware design – is supported by discussions of practical difficulties usually encountered in real world situations. Finally, the book presents a quantum theory of charged particle beam optics, which was developed as recently as the past few decades and only available in the research literature until now.
