Charged Particle Optics Theory: An Introduction - Optical Sciences and Applications of Light (Hardback)Timothy R. Groves (author)
- We can order this
Charged Particle Optics Theory: An Introduction identifies the most important concepts of charged particle optics theory, and derives each mathematically from the first principles of physics. Assuming an advanced undergraduate-level understanding of calculus, this book follows a logical progression, with each concept building upon the preceding one. Beginning with a non-mathematical survey of the optical nature of a charged particle beam, the text:Discusses both geometrical and wave optics, as well as the correspondence between themDescribes the two-body scattering problem, which is essential to the interaction of a fast charged particle with matterIntroduces electron emission as a practical consequence of quantum mechanicsAddresses the Fourier transform and the linear second-order differential equationIncludes problems to amplify and fill in the theoretical details, with solutions presented separately
Charged Particle Optics Theory: An Introduction makes an ideal textbook as well as a convenient reference on the theoretical origins of the optics of charged particle beams. It is intended to prepare the reader to understand the large body of published research in this mature field, with the end result translated immediately to practical application.

"Groves focuses on the quantum physics of how the trajectory of a charged particle beam can be discussed in terms of photons. The book is written in a very accessible style with clear exposition of all topics. The author has surpassed the goal he explains in the preface. For graduate students in physics and optics, this text will be invaluable. I anticipate that this book will also find use among senior researchers and physics educators. I plan to assign it to my students."
-Christian Brosseau, OSA Fellow, Universite de Bretagne Occidentale, Brest, France, from Optics & Photonics News, August 15, 2015
"This book starts at a very fundamental level of physics and provides a highly rigorous explanation of electron and matter optical systems. When working in the field, it is easy to forget the deep physical and mathematical underpinnings of the discipline. This book does a remarkable job clarifying and explaining those underpinnings."
-Karl K. Berggren, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, USA
"The book does a good job of discussing the physics behind how the trajectory of a beam of charged particles can be treated as a beam of photons, and thus illustrates what is meant by optics of charged particles."
-Professor Kanti Jain, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, USA
"This is a nice scholarly review of charged-particle optics that's easy to read and understand. It ties together topics from diverse areas quite well. I'd readily recommend this book to students."
-Henry I. Smith, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, USA
"After mastering the material in this book, the reader will be able to follow any of the other books and handbooks on the subject and so, beyond being a textbook, it is a valuable reference in itself."
-Jon Orloff, Professor Emeritus, University of Maryland at College Park, USA
