Design and simulation of the Colorado State University linear accelerator system
The University of Twente in the Netherlands recently donated a linear accelerator and free-electron laser system to Colorado State University. A detailed model and simulation of the system must be constructed in order to assist the re-commissioning process at CSU. An initial design of the beam-transport system must also be developed. This thesis begins with the basic theory needed to understand the context of the simulations and then works through the accelerator, starting from the point where the beam is generated and continuing through the whole system to the beam dump. Individual components ...
