Accelerators and Stopping Power Experiments

  • H. H. Andersen
Part of the Nato ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 271)


In a series of four lectures, organized in three chapters, the accelerators used for energy-loss measurements are described. The transport and diagnostics of the ion beams are discussed, and experimental details of stopping-power experiments are treated. A number of accelerator topics of less direct connection to stopping powers like storage rings, cooling, microbeams and accelerator mass spectrometry are also touched upon.
