AXEL-2015 - Introduction To Particle Accelerators | starting 19 January


CERN Technical Training 2015: Learning for the LHC

AXEL-2015 is a lecture series on particle accelerators, given at CERN within the framework of the 2014 Technical Training Programme. As part of the BE Department’s Operations Group Shutdown Lecture series, the general accelerator physics module has been organised since 2003 as a joint venture between the BE Department and Technical Training, and is open to the general CERN community.

The AXEL-2015 course is designed for technicians who are operating an accelerator or whose work is closely linked to accelerators, but it is also open to technicians, engineers, and physicists interested in this field. The course does not require any prior knowledge of accelerators. However, some basic knowledge of trigonometry, matrices and differential equations and some basic knowledge of magnetism would be an advantage.

The series will consists of 10 one-hour sessions (Monday 19 January 2015 – Friday 23 January 2015, from 9 a.m. to 10.15 a.m. and from 10.45 a.m. to 12 noon), and will be delivered in English with questions and answers also possible in French. The lecturer is Rende Steerenberg, Deputy Group Leader of the BE Operations Group and PS Section Leader. The programme will cover: basic mathematics; transverse optics; lattice calculations; resonances; longitudinal motion; leptons; transfer lines, injection and ejection; longitudinal and transverse beam instabilities.

Registration is required for this course. Participation in all lectures is encouraged to allow people to gain the maximum benefit; registered participants will be invited and attendance will be recorded in their personal training records. If you are interested in AXEL-2015, please talk to your supervisor and/or your Departmental Training Officer. Register online via the training catalogue. The detailed program is available on the AXEL-2015 webpage, accessible at
