Particle accelerators

  • An Introduction to Beam Physicsby Martin Berz; Kyoko Makino; Weishi Wan

    CRC Press 2014; US$ 135.95

    The field of beam physics touches many areas of physics, engineering, and the sciences. In general terms, beams describe ensembles of particles with initial conditions similar enough to be treated together as a group so that the motion is a weakly nonlinear perturbation of a chosen reference particle. Particle beams are used in a variety of areas,... more...

  • Handbook of Small Modular Nuclear Reactorsby Mario D Carelli; Daniel T Ingersoll

    Elsevier Science 2014; US$ 265.00

    Small modular reactors (SMRs) are an advanced, safe type of nuclear reactor technology that are suitable for small and medium sized applications including both power and heat generation. In particular, their use as individual units or in combination to scale-up capacity offer benefits in terms of siting, installation, operation, lifecycle and economics... more...

  • Accelerator Physics at the Tevatron Colliderby

    Springer New York 2014; US$ 149.00

    This book presents the developments in accelerator physics and technology implemented at the Tevatron proton-antiproton collider, the world?s most powerful accelerator for almost twenty years prior to the completion of the Large Hadron Collider. The book covers the history of collider operation and upgrades, novel arrangements of beam optics and... more...

  • ISAC and ARIEL: The TRIUMF Radioactive Beam Facilities and the Scientific Programby

    Springer Netherlands 2014; US$ 139.00

    The TRIUMF Isotope Separator and Accelerator (ISAC) facility uses the isotope separation on-line (ISOL) technique to produce rare-isotope beams (RIB). The ISOL system consists of a primary production beam, a target/ion source, a mass separator, and beam transport system. The rare isotopes produced during the interaction of the proton beam with the... more...

  • The Theory of Neutron Slowing Down in Nuclear Reactorsby Joel H. Ferziger; P. F. Zweifel; J. V. Dunworth; D. J. Silverleaf

    Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 72.95

    The Theory of Neutron Slowing Down in Nuclear Reactors focuses on one facet of nuclear reactor design: the slowing down (or moderation) of neutrons from the high energies with which they are born in fission to the energies at which they are ultimately absorbed. In conjunction with the study of neutron moderation, calculations of reactor criticality... more...

  • Physics of High-Temperature Reactorsby Luigi Massimo

    Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 72.95

    Physics of High-Temperature Reactors focuses on the physics of high-temperature reactors (HTRs) and covers topics ranging from fuel cycles and refueling strategies to neutron cross-sections, transport and diffusion theory, and resonance absorption. Spectrum calculations and cross-section averaging are also discussed, along with the temperature coefficient... more...

  • Handbook of Accelerator Physics and Engineeringby Alexander Wu Chao; Karl Hubert Mess; Maury Tigner

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2013; US$ 179.00

    Edited by internationally recognized authorities in the field, this expanded and updated new edition of the bestselling Handbook, containing more than 100 new articles, is aimed at the design and operation of modern particle accelerators. It is intended as a vade mecum for professional engineers and physicists engaged in these subjects. With a collection... more...

  • Reviews of Accelerator Science and Technology - Volume 5by Alexander W. Chao; Weiren Chou

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2013; US$ 192.00

    Over the past several decades major advances in accelerators have resulted from breakthroughs in accelerator science and accelerator technology. After the introduction of a new accelerator physics concept or the implementation of a new technology, a leap in accelerator performance followed. A well-known representation of these advances is the Livingston... more...

  • Particle Accelerator Design: Computer Programsby John Colonias

    Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 72.95

    Particle Accelerator Design: Computer Programs describes some of the most important computer programs applicable to the design of particle accelerators. Computer programs that calculate magnetic and electric fields are considered, along with programs that calculate orbits of particles in a magnetic and/or electric field. Some representative programs... more...

  • The Dosimetry of Ionizing Radiationby Kenneth Kase

    Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 72.95

    The Dosimetry of Ionizing Radiation, Volume I focuses on the development in radiation dosimetry, which has its origin in the medical application of ionizing radiation with the discovery of X-rays. This book discusses the irradiation of human beings and the biosphere by ionizing radiation from different sources, which is subjected to increased concern... more...
