Now available: Book on electron lenses, pioneered at Fermilab


Now available from Springer: Electron Lenses for Super-Colliders, by Vladimir Shiltsev:

This book provides a comprehensive overview of the operating principles
and technology of electron lenses in supercolliders. Electron lenses are
a novel instrument for high energy particle accelerators, particularly
for the energy-frontier superconducting hadron colliders, including the
Tevatron, RHIC, LHC and future very large hadron colliders.  After
reviewing the issues surrounding beam dynamics in supercolliders, the
book offers an introduction to the electron lens method and its
application.  Further chapters describe the technology behind the
electron lenses which have recently been proposed, built and employed
for compensation of beam-beam effects and for collimation of high-energy
high-intensity beams, for compensation of space-charge effects and
several other applications in accelerators. The book will be an
invaluable resource for those involved in the design, construction
and operation of the next generation of hadron colliders.
