Historical Overview of High-Brightness Accelerators

  • F. T. Cole
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 178)


The history of high-brightness accelerators cannot be separated from that of accelerators as a whole. Advances in accelerators have been almost as closely connected with intensity as with energy, particularly in fields other than particle physics, in which energy is at a premium. Even here, the relatively new (or perhaps reawakened) interest in colliding beams has been a strong incentive to work on raising intensity and brightness.
