Principles of Charged Particle Acceleration

Principles of Charged Particle Acceleration Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This authoritative text offers a unified, programmed summary of the principles underlying all charged particle accelerators and also doubles as a reference collection of equations and material essential to accelerator development and beam applications. Suitable for graduate students of physics and electrical engineering with no previous background in accelerator theory, it contains straightforward expositions of basic principles rather than detailed theories of specialized areas and is the only text that covers linear induction accelerators.

"Principles of Charged Particle Acceleration has been one of my primary reference books for my research in the generation, focusing, and application of high power electron and ion beams using pulsed power accelerators. . . . It remains a classic reference that is both useful and accessible."—Thomas A. Mehlhorn, Superintendent, Plasma Physics Division, Naval Research Laboratory

"The book succeeds in explaining the key accelerator concepts clearly and starting from basic physical principles. . . . I recommend this book to both novices and experts."—Richard J. Adler, Senior Principal Scientist at Applied Energetics

"Written at the first year postgraduate level, the book is a wonderful introduction to particle accelerator technology. The novice will find that the basic principles are emphasized with the intent to develop an intuitive perspective and provide practical knowledge. . . . The advanced reader will be able to discern that subtly woven into the background of the basics are complex ideas . . . [that] provide deeper insight and interest for those who are ready. Rereading the book after a few years is an enlightening and entertaining experience."—Timothy L. Houck, Group Leader, Accelerator Experiments and Operations Group, National Security Engineering Division, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory

"In this outstandingly clear text, Stan Humphries comprehensively covers everything the beginning student or returning professional needs to know about particle accelerator physics. Whether used as a teaching tool or reference volume this book should find a place on the shelf (or the digital archive) of everyone working in the field of particle accelerators."—Kenneth Gall, Founder and Chief Technology Officer, Mevion Medical Systems
