  • Nominated as an outstanding Ph.D. thesis by the Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron (DESY), Hamburg, Germany
  • The author is the winner of the 2011 European Accelerator Prize for promising young researchers
  • A valuable didactic introduction for students and scientists new to the field of rf diagnostics
  • Provides a detailed survey of various dimension reduction methods applicable for rf diagnostics

This work employs self-excited wakefields as a diagnostic to remotely determine the beam position within a superconducting cavity and chains thereof. Several numerical techniques are delineated in order to ascertain the most appropriate technique in terms of reliability and accuracy. The methodology is carefully explained making the presentation pedagogically appropriate to students new to the field as well as researchers familiar with this topic. Pei Zhang's achievements will serve as a basis for the development of similar monitors at various other facilities around the world.
