Introduction to Electrodynamics for Microwave Linear Accelerators

  title={Introduction to Electrodynamics for Microwave Linear Accelerators},
  author={David H. Whittum},
This collection of notes and exercises is intended as a workbook to introduce the principles of microwave linear accelerators, starting with the underlying foundation in electrodynamics. We review Maxwell's equations, the Lorentz force law, and the behavior of fields near a conducting boundary. We go on to develop the principles of microwave electronics, including waveguide modes, circuit equivalence, shunt admittance of an iris, and voltage standing-wave ratio. We construct an elementary… CONTINUE READING
