Selected Topics of Theory and Experiment on the Space-Charge-Dominated Beam Physics

Yun Zou,
University of Maryland

Space-charge-dominated beam physics plays an important role to the design of future advanced accelerators, such as for high-energy physics, nuclear science and heavy-ion fusions. At the University of Maryland, a small, dedicated facility, called University of Maryland Electron Ring (UMER) is being constructed. Operated with low energy and intense (10 keV, 0.2 mA ~ 100 mA) electron beam, this facility provides us a flexible, low-cost solution to model the high-power ion beams for the understanding of fundamental beam physics and code bench marking. This talk will first give a general introduction to the space-charge-dominated beam physics. Then it will give an overview of the UMER design, and the theory and development of beam diagnostics. Several selected experimental and theoretical topics on the intense beam physics will also be discussed in this talk
