ACCELERATOR PHYSICS

Investigation of particle and photon beams and their mutual interactions with the goal of developing novel accelerators or radiation devices. Some current topics are production and acceleration of high-brightness electron beams for linear colliders and free electron lasers; beam dynamics in ionization cooling for muon colliders and neutrino factories; self-amplified spontaneous emission for intense, coherent x-rays; miniature IR radiation source via Smith-Purcell process using electron microscope beams; phase-space evolution of synchrotron radiation beams and quantum particle beams.
