  1. 1. Nonlinear Beam Physics

    University dissertation from Lund University , Department of physics

    Author : Benjamin Folsom; [2019-03-30]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; nonlinear dynamics; Beam dynamics; Accelerator Physics; space charge; Accelerator magnets; simulations multi-particle dynamics;

    Abstract : A condensed treatment of conventional beam physics (both linear and nonlinear) is given for the non-expert; this constitutes a minimum knowhow for constructing simulations of rudimentary beamlines. The criteria for an ideal nonlinear charged-particle simulation algorithm are then presented, leading to the derivation of a symplectic, explicit, Lorentz-covariant integrator. READ MORE

  2. 2. FPGA-based Instrumentation for Advanced Physics Experiments

    University dissertation from Lund University , Department of physics

    Author : Attila Hidvégi; Samuel Silverstein; Martin Grossmann; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Instrumentation; Data acquisition; clock distribution; trigger; FPGA; PCB; LHC; ATLAS; XFEL; Physics; fysik;

    Abstract : Modern physical experiments often demand advanced instrumentation based on advances in  technology. This work describes four instrumentation physics projects that are based on modern, high-capacity Field-Programmable Gate Arrays, making use of their versatility, programmability, high bandwidth communication interfaces and signal processing capabilities.

  3. 3. Accelerator-driven systems safety and kinetics

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Marcus Eriksson; Janne Wallenius; Hamid Aït Abderrrahim; [2005]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Nuclear physics; Kärnfysik; NATURAL SCIENCES Physics Nuclear physics; NATURVETENSKAP Fysik Kärnfysik;

    Abstract : The accelerator-driven system (ADS) is recognized as a promising system for the purpose of nuclear waste transmutation and minimization of spent fuel radiotoxicity. The primary cause for this derives from its accelerator-driven, sub-critical operating state, which introduces beneficial safety-related features allowing for application of cores employing fuel systems containing pure transuranics or minor actinides, thereby offering increased incineration rate of waste products and minimal deployment of advanced (and expensive) partitioning and transmutation technologies.

  4. 4. Measurements of the Top Quark Pair Production Cross Section and an Estimate of the DØ Silicon Detector Lifetime

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Fysikum

    Author : Sara Strandberg; Christophe Clément; Barbro Åsman; Steinar Stapnes; [2007]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; particle physics; top quark pair production cross section; silicon radiation damage; DØ detector; Tevatron accelerator; NATURAL SCIENCES Physics Elementary particle physics; NATURVETENSKAP Fysik Elementarpartikelfysik; Physics; fysik;

    Abstract : This thesis presents two measurements of the top quark pair production cross section at sqrt{s} = 1.96 TeV using data from the DØ experiment. Both measurements are performed in the dilepton final state and make use of secondary vertex b-tagging. READ MORE

    Abstract : While the dark matter has so far only revealed itself through the gravitational influence it exerts on its surroundings, there are good reasons to believe it is made up by WIMPs – a hypothetical class of heavy elementary particles not encompassed by the Standard Model of particle physics.The Inert Doublet Model constitutes a simple extension of the Standard Model Higgs sector.
