Particle Accelerator Physics (PAP | INR7003U)

Description: Introduction: history of accelerators, basic principles including centre of mass energy, luminosity, accelerating gradient.

- Characteristics of modern colliders; LEP, LHC, b-factories.

- Transverse motion, principles of beam cooling.

- Strong focusing, simple lattices.

- Circulating beams, synchrotron radiation.

- Longitudinal dynamics.

- Multipoles, non-linearities and resonances.

- Radio Frequency cavities, superconductivity in accelerators.

- Applications of accelerators; light sources, medical uses.

- Future: ILC, neutrino factories, muon collider, laser plasma acceleration.
