Accelerator Physics 0302965
A graduate course taught at the University of Jordan.
General course objectives
Review of relevant material in different disciplines of physics like Classical and relativistic dynamics, electric and magnetic forces, fields and field lenses (ion optics), particle orbits, nuclear and radiation, superconductivity, etc.
Principles of Van de Graaff, tandem, pelletron, dynamitron, betatron, tevatron, resonant cavities, linac, cyclotron, synchrotron, storage ring, microtron, etc.
Some end station experiments and spectrographs.
Basic concepts of radiation protection, safety and shielding.
Accelerator driven systems ADS.
The above objectives are planned to be achieved mainly through lectures. Nevertheless, students projects will also contribute to the final outcome.
A collection of references will be used rather than one textbook.
HWs, projects and quizzes
· Wednesdays 14:30-17:30
