Charged Beam Dynamics, Particle Accelerators and Free Electron Lasers

Giuseppe Dattoli, Andrea Doria, Elio Sabia, Marcello Artioli


Charged Beam Dynamics, Particle Accelerators and Free Electron Lasers summarises different topics in the field of accelerators and of Free Electron Laser (FEL) devices. It is intended as a reference manual for the different aspects of FEL devices, explaining how to design both a FEL device and the accelerator providing the driving beam. It covers both theoretical and experimental aspects, allowing researchers to attempt a first design of a FEL device in different operating conditions. It provides an analysis of what is already available, what is needed, and what the challenges are to determine new progress in this field. All chapters contain complements and exercises that are designed in such a way that the reader will gradually acquire self-confidence with the matter treated in the book.

About Editors

The authors are researchers at the ENEA-Frascati Research Center in Italy. Giuseppe Dattoli has been involved in high-energy accelerators, FELs, and applied mathematics networks since 1979. Andrea Doria's research interests include Cerenkov-based FELs and compact FEL sources in the millimetre and far IR regions. Elio Sabia has been involved in theoretical problems connected with particle dynamics in high-energy electron accelerator-driven FELs. Marcello Artioli works on control systems and computer science.
