Q & A
1st Lecture: 9/30/05, 2:00 – 3:30 pm: Definitions, Formalism, Examples
Manipulate charged particles (b+/-, ions, like p,d,a, …)
Beam lines systems
Magnetic & electric analysis/ separation (e.g. St. George)
Acceleration of ions
Over 6*109 people have - I hope so - happy lives without!
A group of accelerator physicists are using it to build machines
that enables physicists to explore the unkown!
Many physicists using accelerators, beam lines and magnet system
(or their data) needs some knowledge of ion-optics.
This lecture series is an introduction to the last group and I will do
my best to let you in on the basics first and than we will discuss
some of the applications of ion-optics and related topics.
Introduction for physicists Focus on ion-optical definitions, and tools that
are useful for physicist at the NSL & future users of St. George recoil separator.
Light optics can hardly be discussed without lenses & optical instruments
ion-optics requires knowledge of ion-optical elements.
Analogy between Light Optics and Ion-Optics is useful but limited.
Ion-optical & magnet design tools needed to understand electro-magnet systems. Ion-optics is not even 100 years old and (still) less intuitive than optics developed
since several hundred years
Optics in Siderus Nuncius 1610
Historical remarks: Rutherford, 1911, discovery of atomic nucleus
Geometry, drawing tools, CAD drafting program (e.g. AutoCad)
