by Stanley Humphries

**Publisher**: Wiley-Interscience 1999**ISBN/ASIN**: 0471878782**ISBN-13**: 9780471878780**Number of pages**: 593

**Description**:

An introductory text on the physics of charged particle acceleration and transport. Both low energy and high energy accelerators are covered, so that the material is relevant to a wide variety of applications. Provides a detailed discussion of the role of ferromagnetic materials in accelerators, and a review of ferromagnetic materials and permanent magnets. Offers a unique review of high voltage phenomena and pulsed power circuits--vacuum breakdown, Marx generators, transmission lines, pulse forming networks and pulsed beam diagnostics. It's also the only text to present material on linear induction accelerator.
