"PHYS 7688: Topics in Accelerator Physics"
Professor: Georg Hoffstaetter, Georg.Hoffstaetter@cornell.edu
Grader: William Lou, email@example.com
Accelerator Physics has applications in particle accelerators for high energy physics or for x-ray science, in spectrometers, in electron microscopes, and in lithographic devices. These instruments have become so complex that an empirical approach to properties of the particle beams is by no means sufficient and a detailed theoretical understanding is necessary. This course will introduce into theoretical aspects of charged particle beams and into the technology used for their acceleration.
