Editorial Series on Accelerator Science and Technology

The Editorial Series on Accelerator Science and Technology was started in 2008 as a joint initiative of the EU FP6 project CARE and its successor, EU FP7 project EuCARD. Copies from the Series up to Vol.18 volumes can be ordered here, free of charge. From Vol. 18 onwards, copies can be ordered here. If you need help with ordering, please contact us.


Vol. 46: Optimizing a Calorimetry Chamber for the RF Characterization of Superconductors

Sebastian Keckert, MSc Thesis, 75 pages

In this thesis an optimized calorimetry chamber is developed, providing flat and easy mountable samples. Furthermore, it enables exchangeability of samples between the resonators at HZB and CERN.

Vol. 47: Radio Frequency Characterization of Superconductors for Particle Accelerators

Raphael Kleindienst, PhD Thesis, 157 pages

Within this work, the design, production and commissioning of an optimized Quadrupole Resonator is presented.

Vol. 48: Higher-Order-Mode-based Beam Phase and Beam Position Measurements in Superconducting Accelerating Cavities at the European XFEL

Liangliang Shi, PhD Thesis, 183 pages

I have designed and instrumented unconventional beam phase monitors based on monopole modes in TESLA cavities and demonstrated a routine resolution of 0.1° with a broadband setup.

Vol. 49: Predicting Heat Propagation in Roebel Cable-based Accelerator Magnet Prototype

Janne Ruuskanen, MSc Thesis, 64 pages

In this thesis, quench modelling of superconducting magnets is discussed. Moreover, a simulation tool was developed for quench simulations suitable for large superconducting devices. The tool utilizes a novel numerical approach to solve three-dimensional (3-D) heat diffusion in one-dimensional (1-D) modelling domain.

Vol. 50: Thermomechanical Response of Advanced Materials under Quasi-Instantaneous Heating

Federico Carra, PhD Thesis, 280 pages

This PhD thesis focuses on the latter scenario, where the heat deposition rate is high enough to lead to the origination of stress waves, propagating from the locally-heated zone to the surrounding of the structure, and superposing with the quasi-static stress field.

Vol. 51: Ultra-high vacuum characterization of advanced materials for future particle accelerators 

Carlotta Accettura, MSc Thesis, 142 pages

In order fully characterize the materials, different experimental set-ups were involved: one of the most important parts of the work was performed in vacuum test benches, where the outgassing rate value and the gas analysis of the materials have been evaluated.

Vol. 52: Electron Accelerators for Research, Industry and Environment − the INCT Perspective

Andrzej G. Chmielewski & Zbigniew Zimek (Editors), 236 pages

This book is a result of work carried out under the Horizon 2020 ARIES project and concerns the development of new technologies to ensure that future accelerators will be more affordable, reliable, sustainable and more effective. Considerations include energy efficiency, new accelerator conceptions, new high-temperature superconductors, new superconducting coatings and new materials for thermal management

Vol. 53: Coupling impendance and single beam collective effects for the Future Circular Collider

Eleonora Belli, PhD Thesis, 161 pages

By analyzing the structure of this mode, whose presence has been confirmed with CST simulations in the frequency domain, longitudinal slots and a water-cooled absorber were designed and included in the IR model to reduce the power loss and to prevent vacuum degradation.
