For each topics, from fundamental aspects to designs for linear colliders (mainly for ILC) will be explained.
According to the guideline of the school, I try to give lectures as basic as possible. It should be understood
without any backgrounds on accelerator physics.
It is very helpful for me if you send any comments before the lecture about the material, e.g. pointing
out anything hard to understand, anything wrong, etc.
• Role of damping rings
• High-level overview of structure, and
principles of operation
• Review of basic linear beam dynamics
• Damping ring lattice
• Radiation damping (derivation of damping
times, and the need for a
damping wiggler in LC damping rings)
• Quantum excitation and equilibrium beam
(Cockcroft Institute and University of Liverpool)
• Beam-beam interaction and crossing angle
• Accelerator-detector interface, shielding and
• Background and detector protection
• Beam monitoring and control at final focus

- the CERN summer student lecture from August 2007 (45min)
- the presentation from the HEP 2007 conference (25min)
- a seminar about CLIC (60min)
The actual ILC school lecture is posted under 'The Lecture'.
