Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2016-2017. Courses of Study 2017-2018 is scheduled to publish mid-June.

This course covers fundamental physical principles of particle accelerators. starting from an historical approach different accelerator concepts will be review. This includes electrostatic an acceleration with radio frequency fields in linear and circular accelerators. The lecture will cover the enabling technologies like magnets and cavities with an emphasis on the state-of the-art superconductivity in particle accelerators. The concepts of particle dynamics in accelerators, heating and cooling techniques and applications in nuclear physics, elementary particle physics and radiation physics will be included.  At the level of The Physics of Particle Accelerators by K. Wille.
