Course Accelerator Physics and Ion Optics 2007-2008
In the academic year 2007 – 2008 I wil present 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.
