Introduction High-Brightness Accelerators
This volume contains the proceedings of the 1986 “High Brightness Accelerators” NATO Advanced Study Institute. The object of the Institute was to address issues concerned with the generation and applications of low emittance, high current beams. The scope of the workshop was very broad. It addressed the fundamentals of accelerator design both from the point of view of the needs of the high energy physicist and also from the perspective of more general applications. The range of accelerator designs and concepts reviewed varied from the TeV, low current devices to the multi-megampere, MeV accelerators used for the study of inertial confinement fusion. In almost all applications the beam brightness, the current per unit area per unit solid angle, plays an important role.
