About this book

This book provides a comprehensive overview of the operating principles and technology of electron lenses in supercolliders.  Electron lenses are a novel instrument for high energy particle accelerators, particularly for the energy-frontier superconducting hadron colliders, including the Tevatron, RHIC, LHC and future very large hadron colliders.  After reviewing the issues surrounding beam dynamics in supercolliders, the book offers an introduction to the electron lens method and its application.  Further chapters describe the technology behind the electron lenses which have recently been proposed, built and employed for compensation of beam-beam effects and for collimation of high-energy high-intensity beams, for compensation of space-charge effects and several other applications in accelerators. The book will be an invaluable resource for those involved in the design, construction and operation of the next generation of hadron colliders.

About the authors

Vladimir Shiltsev received his PhD in Accelerator Physics in 1994 from Budker Institute of Nuclear Physics (Novosibirsk, Russia). From 1993 to 1995 he was a visiting scientist at the SSC Lab (Dallas, TX) and DESY (Hamburg, Germany). He has been at Fermilab since 1996, where he started the Tevatron Electron Lens project, and then was Head of the Tevatron Department from 2001 to 2005. He is also Founding Director of Fermilab’s Accelerator Physics Center (2007-present), Fellow of the American Physical Society, and Winner of 2004 European Accelerator Prize from European Physical Society.

Reviews

“With an energetic writing style, in this book Vladimir Shiltsev presents a novel device for accelerators and storage rings. … the book is an excellent entry point for anyone who would like to become familiar with the concepts, technology and possible application of electron lenses. It is also a useful reference for many formulas, allowing for fast estimates, and for the published work on this topic – up to the date of publication.” (Wolfram Fischer, CERN Courier, cerncourier.com, November, 2016)
