The first lecture about particle
accelerators begins with a look into their history and subsequent classification.
The second chapter is about the
history of direct action accelerators.
The third lecture
is dedicated to various linear accelerators, the electromagnetic wave
accelerator and the Radio-Frequency Quadrupole accelerator with a look into
their respective origins.
This chapter focuses on Linacs with
traveling-waves, such as the IREN (Frank Laboratory of Neutron Physics, JINR)
and the Linac-200 (Dzhelepov Laboratory for Nuclear Problems).
Learn more about collective
acceleration as it is used in modern accelerators.
An in-depth look at
the first cyclic particle accelerator, the Betatron.
The seventh chapter is focused on the
classification of Cyclic RF Resonant accelerators.
An introduction to the Cyclotron,
which accelerates charged particles from the center along a spiral path.
This chapter focuses on the accelerating
setup called the Microtron.
The last chapter discusses modern
machines built in XX century: Phasotron, Synchrophasotron, Nuclotron and the
future accelerator complex, NICA, being built in XXI century.
