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.
