This program is primarily focused on beam theory. There are three main areas of investigation: collective effects, physics of free electron laser (FEL), and beam optics and nonlinear dynamics. The group supports the operating accelerators at SLAC and studies beam physics that can enable or limit future accelerators. Members work closely with other ARD programs.
