Unifying Physics of Accelerators, Lasers and Plasma introduces the physics of accelerators, lasers and plasma in tandem with the industrial methodology of inventiveness, a technique that teaches that similar problems and solutions appear again and again in seemingly dissimilar disciplines. This unique approach builds bridges and enhances connections between the three aforementioned areas of physics that are essential for developing the next generation of accelerators.

Boasting more than 200 illustrations, this highly visual text:

  • Employs TRIZ to amalgamate and link different areas of science
  • Avoids heavy mathematics, using back-of-the-envelope calculations to convey key principles
  • Includes end-of-chapter exercises focusing on physics and on applications of the inventiveness method

Solutions manual available with qualifying course adoption

Unifying Physics of Accelerators, Lasers and Plasma outlines a path from idea to practical implementation of scientific and technological innovation. The book is suitable for students at the senior undergraduate and graduate levels, as well as for senior scientists interested in enhancing their abilities to work successfully on the development of the next generation of facilities, devices and scientific instruments manufactured from the synergy of accelerators, lasers and plasma.

About the Author:

Andrei Seryi is currently director of the John Adams Institute for Accelerator Science and professor at the University of Oxford. He graduated from Novosibirsk State University in 1986 and received his Ph.D from the Budker Institute of Nuclear Physics in 1994. Until 2010, he worked at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, operated by Stanford University for the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science, where he led the design and first stages of implementation of the Facility for Advanced Accelerator Experimental Tests project and the beam delivery efforts for the linear collider. He also served as deputy spokesperson of the High Energy Accelerator Research Organization’s Accelerator Test Facility (ATF) International Collaboration for the ATF2 project, is serving as a chairperson or is a member of a number of advisory committees, and is a fellow of the American Physical Society.

Review:

"...Unifying Physics of Accelerators, Lasers and Plasma is a must-have for every student and practitioner of accelerator science. It is a quick reference guide and provides solid, intuitive discussions of what are often quite erudite concepts. I enthusiastically applaud this outstanding book."
―Sekazi Mtingwa in Physics Today, August 2016

"This book is, to my knowledge, the first to bridge the three disciplines of accelerators, lasers and plasmas. It fills a gap in the market and helps in developing a better understanding of the concepts used in the quest to build compact accelerators. It is an inspiring read that is suitable for both undergraduate and graduate students, as well as researchers in the field of plasma accelerators."
―Robert Bingham, University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, CERN Courier, May 2016

"With Unifying Physics of Accelerators, Lasers and Plasma, Andrei Seryi has written a fascinating account. ... The book makes a bold and visionary pledge, which it claims could, if successful, transform science and our daily lives. Finally, the author’s intention not only to unify accelerator, laser and plasma physics but also to accelerate the creation of novelty in science shows inspiring ways ahead. ... Andrei Seryi has written an important, insightful and visionary book. ... With his impressive wealth and breadth of knowledge, his mastery of the underlying quantitative formulation and an outstanding ability to connect not only dots but entire domains, there is a lot one can learn from this book and quite likely also from the author himself."
The TRIZ Journal, March 2016

"A must-read book for college seniors and graduate students interested in cutting-edge topics in accelerator and beam physics. This field has become truly multidisciplinary where lasers and plasmas are featuring very prominently in new ideas for particle acceleration, focusing, and new light sources. Professor Seryi has covered the essential fundamentals of accelerators, lasers, and plasmas to prepare students for their research careers in modern science of particle accelerators."
―Professor Chandrashekhar Joshi, University of California, Los Angeles

"A wonderful source of inspiration for experts and novices alike, Andrei Seryi’s book takes the reader on a fascinating journey from the beginning of accelerator science to today’s most active research frontiers. Beside many other exciting topics, in this concise and enjoyable work, Seryi reviews the key elements of classical accelerators, beam optics, radiofrequency acceleration and technology, synchrotron radiation, beam instabilities, x-ray free-electron lasers, plasma acceleration, cancer therapy, advanced beam manipulation methods, and concepts of high-energy colliders, while frequently taking glimpses into the future. In this gem, Seryi, for the first time, discusses the three areas of accelerators, lasers, and plasmas from a unified perspective. ... The tantalizing reading experience is enhanced by many original and ingenious illustrations. ..."
―Frank Zimmermann, Senior Scientist, Beams Department, European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN), and Editor of Physical Review Special Topics - Accelerators and Beams (PRST-AB)

"This is a fun book to read, as well as educational. It is a textbook for a cross-disciplinary course, but it is also perfectly suitable for self-study. Its contents are quite unique and of interest for students preparing for research in a very promising and growing direction. ... Instead of detailed technical mathematics and derivations, this book emphasizes the underlying physics that advances concepts, supplemented by a large number of vivid illustrations. ... It encourages and challenges readers to look for their own inventions. ... The author also offers his answer to the theory of inventive problem solving (TRIZ) exercise while challenging readers to do the same on their own. This is a very future-oriented book. For readers, be inspired, be challenged, and happy inventing!"
―Alex Chao, Professor, SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, Stanford University, California, USA
