Item description for Theory and Design of Charged Particle Beams (Wiley Series in Beam Physics and Accelerator Technology) by Martin Reiser...

Most advanced accelerator applications require beams with high-power and high brightness, which are determined by space-charge effects at low energy. Examples are the giant High Energy Physics Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN, to be launched in 2008, and the International Linear Collider (ILC) being considered to follow the LHC. Other examples are Spallation Neutron Sources, the proposed Heavy Ion Inertial Fusion driver for energy production, Free Electron Lasers, and Muon Colliders.

This revised and updated monograph offers a broad synoptic description of beams in accelerators and other devices with negligible to strong space charge effects. The book develops material in a systematic way and discusses the underlying physics and validity of theoretical relationships, design formulas and scaling laws. Assumptions and approximations are clearly indicated throughout.

The new edition of Theory and Design of Charged Particle Beams has significant additional content, which covers experiments, theory, and simulation in beam physics research since 1993, when the first edition was published. It includes the University of Maryland Electron Ring for studying space-charge dominated beams in rings and re-circulators.

From the Contents:

  • Review of Charged Particle Dynamics
  • Beam Optics and Focusing Systems without Space Charge
  • Linear Beam Optics with Space Charge
  • Self-Consistent Theory of Beams
  • Emittance Variation
  • Beam Physics Research from 1999 to 2007

From 1961 to 1964 he was assistant professor of physics at Michigan State University. In 1965, he joined the University of Maryland as associate professor of Electrical Engineering and Physics. He has been a full professor there since 1970. He was co-founder of the University of Maryland's Institute for Research in Electronics and Applied Physics (IREAP). His research interests are in the space charge physics of intense beams. Professor Reiser is the author of more than 300 research papers and served on numerous committees. In 1997/98 he was chair of the Executive Committee of the APS Division of Physics of Beams. He retired in 1998 as Professor Emeritus of Electrical and Computer Engineering from his teaching position and continues to work part-time with his research group in IREAP.

Martin Reiser was born in 1927 and has an academic affiliation as follows - Univ. of Maryland Univ. of Maryland, College Park Univ. of Maryland Un.

Reviews - What do customers think about Theory and Design of Charged Particle Beams (Wiley Series in Beam Physics and Accelerator Technology)?

Ingenious methods  Jun 20, 2004
Particle accelerators are well described in this book. One of their biggest objectives is to maximise the beam luminosity, so that when the beam is incident on another beam, or a target, the maximal number of reactions can happen. But the problem is that if the beam consists of charged particles, then these are usually of the same charge. Hence space charge effects can act to force the beam apart, either longitudinally or transversely. Neither is desirable.

Reiser describes many beam focusing techniques that have been developed over the decades to circumvent this problem. Quite impressive ingenuity. Some of the best experimental physicists have gone into this field, and their efforts are well summarised here.

Other non-accelerator applications are described. Though perhaps the most interesting to some of you have to be omitted by necessity. These are military applications, where particle beams might be used as antimissile defenses. (Star Wars.)
