The course gives a summary of longitudinal beam dynamics for both linear and circular accelerators. After discussing different types of acceleration methods and synchronism conditions, it focuses on the particle motion in synchrotrons. 

Beam Dynamics in Synchrotrons

The paper gives an overview of the particle dynamics in synchrotrons and storage rings. Both, transverse as well as the longitudinal plane are described in linear approximation. The main emphasis is

Introduction to Non-linear Longitudinal Beam Dynamics

The interaction of a charged particle beam with radio-frequency (RF) systems in most linear or circular accelerators is an non-linear process. The large longitudinal electric fields for acceleration

Low-level RF - Part I: Longitudinal dynamics and beam-based loops in synchrotrons

The low-level RF system (LLRF) generates the drive sent to the high-power equipment. In synchrotrons, it uses signals from beam pick-ups (radial and longitudinal) to minimize the beam losses and

Possible Mitigations of Longitudinal Intensity Limitations for HL-LHC Beam in the CERN SPS

The Super Proton Synchrotron (SPS) at CERN is the injector of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the world’s largest particle collider. The High-Luminosity LHC (HL-LHC) project is a major step forward

Preliminary design of the new Proton Synchrotron Internal Dump core

The luminosity of the LHC particle accelerator at CERN is planned to be upgraded in the first half of 2020s, requiring also the upgrade of its injector accelerators, including the Proton Synchrotron

Preliminary results obtained with the LHC Vacuum Pilot Sector

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is affected by electron cloud that reduces the quality of the beam, provokes instabilities, and increases the residual-gas pressure and heat load in the vacuum

Final Muon Cooling For A Muon Collider

To explore the new energy frontier, a new generation of particle accelerators is needed. Muon colliders are a promising alternative, if muon cooling can be made to work. Muons are 200 times heavier

Acceleration and Phase Space Manipulation of Relativistic Electron Beams in Nano- and Micrometer-Scale Dielectric Structures

This thesis is about simulations, proof-of-principle experimental setups and first test experiments for new ultra-compact particle accelerators based on dielectric structures. Due to the high damage
