Theory and Design of Charged Particle Beams - Martin Reiser

Hailed as the "Bible of Space-charge-dominated beams", we are pleased to announce that "Theory and Design of Charged Particle Beams" by Professor Martin Reiser is now available after the third printing by Wiley-VCH.

The publisher, Wiley

Although particle accelerators are the book's main thrust, it offers a broad synoptic description of beams which applies to a wide range of other devices such as low-energy focusing and transport systems and high-power microwave sources. Develops material from first principles, basic equations and theorems in a systematic way. Assumptions and approximations are clearly indicated. Discusses underlying physics and validity of theoretical relationships, design formulas and scaling laws. Features a significant amount of recent work including image effects and the Boltzmann line charge density profiles in bunched beams.

About the Author
Martin Reiser received his Ph.D. in physics in 1960 from the University of Mainz, Germany. From 1961 to 1964 he was assistant professor of physics at Michigan State University. In 1965, he joined the University of Maryland as associate professor of Electrical Engineering and Physics, and he has been a full professor there since 1970. He was co-founder of the University of Maryland's Institute for Research in Electronics and Applied Physics (IREAP). His research interests are in the space charge physics of intense beams, which is studied in scaled experiments with low energy electrons. Currently, the major research facility is the University of Maryland Electron Ring. Professor Reiser is the author of more than 300 research papers and served on numerous committees. In 1997/98 he was chair of the Executive Committee of the APS Division of Physics of Beams. He retired in 1998 as Professor Emeritus of Electrical and Computer Engineering from his teaching position and continues to work part-time with his research group in IREAP.
