|The course builds on the basic knowledge of accelerators from the course “Introduction to Accelerators and FEL” MAXM07 (or equivalent). The material is concentrated on electron accelerators for synchrotron light and Free Electron Lasers (FEL). A deeper view of transverse electron beam optics and introduction to longitudinal optics is given. Issues of lifetime and design are addressed. Simulation tools are introduced and model accelerators analysed. In the field of FELs the different types are explained and the basic theory elaborated. Concepts of bunch compression, space charge, emittance compensation and coherent synchrotron radiation are introduced. The special requirements of accelerators for FELs are discussed and their components are analysed. The course includes laborative work on the accelerators at MAX-lab.
