Accelerator Physics

  • 7.5 credits

The course is open to physics students who want to work in research on particle accelerators or use particle accelerators in experimental or medical research.

The course describes:

- technical components such as electromagnets, radio frequency systems, vacuum, ion sources and beam diagnostics

- transversal and longitudinal beam dynamics

- overview of circular and linear accelerators and applications: colliders, cyclotrons, synchrotron light sources, free electron lasers, ion traps and storage rings and their applications.

- accelerators with Swedish connection: for example MAX I-IV, ESS, XFEL, FAIR, LHC och DESIREE.

-accelerators used for cancer therapy: for example Skandion Clinic in Uppsala and HIT in Heidelberg.

Further course information will appear soon on this page. Until then, information can be found on the department website.
