A pepper-pot emittance meter for low-energy heavy-ion beams.

The design, construction, and operation of the instrument as well as the data analysis used to reconstruct the four-dimensional phase-space distribution of an ion beam are described.

Handbook of Accelerator Physics and Engineering

Concerned with the design and operation of modern accelerators including linacs, synchrotrons and storage rings, this text includes both theoretical and practical matters. Chapters on beam dynamics


Optics stability during all phases of operation is crucial for the LHC. The optical properties of the machine have been optimized based on a detailed magnetic model of the SC magnets and on their

Investigation of the longitudinal charge distribution of electron bunches at the VUV-FEL using the transverse deflecting cavity LOLA

The Vacuum-Ultraviolet Free Electron Laser (VUVFEL) at DESY in Hamburg produces photon pulses with high brilliance in the VUV up to soft X-ray regime. Since electron bunches with a high peakcurrent

Theory of the Alternating-Gradient Synchrotron

Some basic features of the beam emittance

Some general features of the beam emittance are discussed. The significance of rms values for the emittance calculation and emittance measurements is emphasized and it is shown that the emittance of
