Accelerator Physics

Ozan Artun

Bülent Ecevit University

As an active researcher in particle accelerators, radioisotope production, nuclear batteries, software development, nuclear structure, nuclear fuel, and ionizing radiation, Dr. Ozan Artun has developed an X-PMSP (X-Particle the Mass Stopping Power) program that comprises five thousand lines of code and is considered for calculating the mass stopping power in the energy range between 1 MeV and 1000 MeV (

About the book

Accelerator technology involves many different fields within the science and engineering scope, e.g. physics, material science, computer science, electrical and electronic engineering, mechanical engineering, optics, etc. It is obvious that the operating principle of accelerators is based on the laws of physics, especially for the propulsion of charged particles to high speeds and energies using electromagnetic fields. Accelerator physics is concerned with building and operating particle accelerators including nuclear physics, condensed physics, and particle physics. Therefore, this book will aim to provide a comprehensive perspective of particle accelerators in terms of physics, but also in interdisciplinary terms. In addition to fundamental principles and dynamics of the particle accelerators, the book will take into account theoretical and experimental advances and applications of the linear and circular particle accelerators used in nuclear medicine, nuclear physics and isotope production, sterilization of medical devices, high-energy physics, and industrial applications.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Nera Butigan

As an Author Service Manager, my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors, and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing or reviewing. I assist authors in preparing their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines to ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
