G1E: contains specially designed degree project for Higher Education Diploma
G2F: has at least 60 credits in first-cycle course/s as entry requirements
G2E: has at least 60 credits in first-cycle course/s as entry requirements, contains degree project for Bachelor of Arts/Bachelor of Science
GXX: in-depth level of the course cannot be classified
A1N: has only first-cycle course/s as entry requirements
A1F: has second-cycle course/s as entry requirements
A1E: contains degree project for Master of Arts/Master of Science (60 credits)
A2E: contains degree project for Master of Arts/Master of Science (120 credits)

120 credits with 30 credits in physics including Electromagnetic Field Theory, Mechanics III, Wave Mechanics and Mathematical Methods of Physics. Proficiency in English equivalent to the Swedish upper secondary course English 6.
The course is intended for students planning to do research within the field of charged particle accelerators or who use accelerators in their field of research such as High-energy and nuclear physics or synchrotron radiation based physics.
On completion of the course, the student should be able to:
design simple beam transport systems for charged particles
explain the operation of the most common technical components and diagnostic methods
solve simple control and correction problems pertaining to accelerators
explain limitations of different types of accelerators
design simple accelerator vacuum systems.
- Overview over different types of accelerators: Circular and linear, collider, cooler rings, synchrotron light-sources, medical accelerators, cyclotrons. - Transverse and longitudinal beam dynamics: matrix methods, emittance, beta functions, dispersion phase-stability. - Limitations due to space charge and instabilities. - Technical components such as magnets, radio-frequency systems, vacuum, particle sources and diagnostic for current, position and beam size.
Lectures, lessons and field visits.
Hand-in exercises and seminar.
If there are special reasons for doing so, an examiner may make an exception from the method of assessment indicated and allow a student to be assessed by another method. An example of special reasons might be a certificate regarding special pedagogical support from the disability coordinator of the university.
