Summary of Linear-Beam Transport
The paraxial beam envelope equation is briefly reviewed to point out the qualitative features of beam transport in external focusing structures and linear accelerators. Recent developments in understanding high-current beams are discussed. The importance of generalized perveance and depressed phase advance are emphasized. Comments are offered on the use of the term ‘brightness’ in the context of current applications.
