Particle Beam Parameters

  • Helmut Wiedemann


Particle beams are characterized by a set of quantifying parameters being either constants of motion or functions varying from point to point along a beam transport line. The parameters may be a single particle property like the betatron function which is the same for all particles within a beam or quantities that are defined only for a collection of particles like beam sizes or beam intensity. We will define and derive expressions for such beam parameters and use them to characterize particle beams and develop methods for manipulation of such parameters.
