Space charge in proton linacs

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

There are at least two reasons for the interest in space-charge effects in proton linacs. First, it can be expected that there are some areas of commonality in the space-charge physics of linacs and circular machines. Second, a linac delivers the input beam to a circular machine, so understanding the linac physics helps to explain the limitations for the input beam quality to a ring. This presentation is divided into three parts. First, the authors discuss space-charge effects form the linac point of view. Second, they discuss practical methods of calculation of linac beam dynamics that include space-charge forces. Finally, ... continued below
