           Goals of particle physics
   particle physics or high energy physics
    •  is looking for the smallest constituents of
       matter (the “ultimate building blocks”) and for
       the fundamental forces between them;
      aim is to find description in terms of the
       smallest number of particles and forces
      at given length scale, it is useful to describe
       matter in terms of specific set of
       constituents which can be treated as
       at shorter length scale, these fundamental
       constituents may turn out to consist of smaller
       parts (be “composite”).
         in 19th century, atoms were considered smallest
          building blocks,

   electrostatic accelerators:
     generate high voltage between two
       electrodes  charged particles move in
                       electric field,
      energy gain = charge times voltage drop;
     Cockcroft-Walton and Van de Graaff
       accelerators differ in method to achieve
       high voltage.
   proton linac (drift tube accelerator):
     cylindrical metal tubes (drift tubes) along axis
      of large vacuum tank
     successive drift tubes connected to opposite
      terminals of AC voltage source
     no electric field inside drift tube  while in
      drift tube, protons move with constant
     AC frequency such that protons always find
      accelerating field when reaching gap between
      drift tubes
     length of drift tubes increases to keep drift
      time constant

   cyclotron
     consists of two hollow metal chambers called
        (“dees” for their shape, with open sides which are
        parallel, slightly apart from each other (“gap”)
       dees connected to AC voltage source - always one
        dee positive when other negative  electric field in

                    B = magnetic field strength,
                    R = radius of curvature
       radius of path increases as momentum of proton
        increases time for passage always the same as long
        as momentum proportional to velocity
        this is not true when velocity becomes too big
        (``relativistic change of mass'')
      Accelerators: “relativistic effects”
   “relativistic effects”
     special relativity tells us that certain
      approximations made in Newtonian mechanics
      break down at very high speeds;
     relation between momentum and velocity in
      “old” (Newtonian) mechanics: p = m v becomes
      p = mo v , with  = 1/1 - (v/c)2
      mo = “rest mass”, i.e. mass is replaced by
                         rest mass times 
                - “relativistic growth of mass”
     factor  often called “Lorentz factor”;
      ubiquitous in relations from special relativity;
      energy: E = moc2
     acceleration in a cyclotron is possible as long
      as relativistic effects are negligibly small, i.e.
      only for small speeds, where momentum is still
      proportional to speed; at higher speeds,
      particles not in resonance with accelerating
      frequency; for acceleration, need to change
      magnetic field B or accelerating frequency f
      or both;
              Accelerators,        cont’d

   electron linac
     electrons reach nearly speed of light at small
      energies (at 2 MeV, electrons have 98% of
      speed of light);
      no drift tubes; use travelling e.m. wave inside
      resonant cavities for acceleration.
   synchrocyclotron:
     B kept constant, f decreases;
   synchrotron :
     B increases during acceleration,
      f fixed (electron synchrotron)
      or varied (proton synchrotron);
      radius of orbit fixed.
