Course Accelerator Physics and Ion Optics 2005-2006
In the academic year 2005 - 2006 I gave a course on charged particle optics and accelerator physics for master and graduate students. The course gives four credit points according to the new ECTS (European Credit Transfer System) that is presently being implemented at the RuG.
The course has been based on the book
An Introduction to Particle Accelerators
Oxford University Press (
and selected material from
Cyclotrons, linacs and their applications
CERN yellow report 96-02
The literature to be studied is specified here.
Contents of the lectures and the problems for the exercise solvingsessions
Week 3 - 30 november/2 december
2005: Beam optics
optimum value of the focussing strength in a F0DO-lattice
Week 5 - 14/16 december: Orbit distortions
In the january 2004 issue of the Nederlands Tijdschrift voor Natuurkunde (in Dutch) Robert F. Mudde (TU Delft) published a paper (Robert Mudde, 'De kick van bellen', Nederlands Tijdschrift voor Natuurkunde 70/1 (2004), 4-8) on oscillations in a liquid, driven by airbubbles injected in the liquid. The analysis and behaviour of this system is too a large extent analogous to that of orbit distortions in ring accelerators by localized lattice errors.
Week 7 - 11/13 january
Week 8 - 18/20 january 2007: Special topic to be defined
