Description - The Physics of Synchrotron Radiation by Albert Hofmann

This book explains the underlying physics of synchrotron radiation and derives its main properties. It is divided into four parts. The first covers the general case of the electromagnetic fields created by an accelerated relativistic charge. The second part concentrates on the radiation emitted by a charge moving on a circular trajectory. The third looks at undulator radiation, covering plane weak undulators, strong undulators and other more general undulators. The final part deals with applications and investigates the optics of synchrotron radiation dominated by diffraction due to the small opening angle. It also includes a description of electron storage rings as radiation sources and the effect of the emitted radiation on the electron beam. This book provides a valuable reference for scientists and engineers in the field of accelerators, and all users of synchrotron radiation.

Author Biography - Albert Hofmann

Albert Hofmann received his Doctorate in physics from the ETH (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology) in Zurich, in 1964. From 1966 to 1972 he was a Research Fellow at the Cambridge Electron Accelerator, a joint laboratory of Harvard University and MIT. He then spent the next ten years working as Senior Physicist at CERN, Geneva. In 1983 he became a professor at Stanford University, working on the Stanford Linear Collider (SLC) and on optimising the storage rings SPEAR and PEP for synchrotron radiation use. He spent two years as head of the SLAC beam dynamics group. He then returned to CERN, in 1987, and was jointly responsible for the commissioning of the Large Electron Positron ring LEP. After its completition, he worked on accelerator physics problems with this machine up until his retirement from CERN in 1998. Over the years Professor Hofmann has done consulting work for other machines, such as the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF), the Synchrotron Radiation Research Center (SRRC) in Taiwan and the Swiss Light Source (SLS). He has taught in over 25 short-term schools on accelerator physics and synchrotron radiation, and has published numerous papers. In 1992 he was elected to become a Fellow of the American Physical Society, in 1996 he received the Robert Wilson Prize from this Society and in 2001 he obtained the degree Dr. Honoris Causa from the University of Geneva.
