About this book

A broad class of accelerators rests on the induction principle whereby the accelerating electrical fields are generated by time-varying magnetic fluxes. Particularly suitable for the transport of bright and high-intensity beams of electrons, protons or heavy ions in any geometry (linear or circular) the research and development of induction accelerators is a thriving subfield of accelerator physics. This text is the first comprehensive account of both the fundamentals and the state of the art about the modern conceptual design and implementation of such devices. Accordingly, the first part of the book is devoted to the essential features of and key technologies used for induction accelerators at a level suitable for postgraduate students and newcomers to the field. Subsequent chapters deal with more specialized and advanced topics.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“Induction Accelerators, a volume of 12 essays by well known experts, forms a structured exposition of the basic principles and functions of major technical systems of induction accelerators. The editors have arranged the essays in the logical progression of chapters in a textbook. … Both physicists and engineers will find the papers in Induction Accelerators well written with ample … bibliographies. … it could profitably be used as associated reading in a course about accelerator science and technology. … I recommend it highly.” (William Barletta, CERN Courier, June, 2011)
