This is a collection of links to video lectures related to particle accelerators and their applications from CERN - particle accelerators, linear colliders, particle detectors, and their applications.


Video/text The Control Systems of the Large Hadron Collider
Description By Roman Gorbonosov, 2013. The accelerator control system has been developed with the primary target being the LHC machine. The approach used was pragmatic with the overall goal to design and develop a modular system, flexible and generic enough to be extended to the other accelerators at CERN. In the front-ends, the structure and behavior of equipment software was formalised, and an object-oriented programming framework (FESA) was developed based on the resulting formal model. ...

Description By Werner Riegler, 2008. This lecture series will first review the elementary processes and techniques on which particle detectors are based. These must always be kept in mind when discussing the limits of existing technologies and motivations for novel developments. ...

Video/text Positrons sources for electron-positron colliders. Application to ILC and CLIC
Description By Robert Chehab, 2008. The increased demanding qualities for positron sources dedicated to e+e- colliders pushed on investigations oriented on new kinds of e+ sources. The different kinds of positron sources polarized and no polarized are considered. Their main features (intensity, emittance) are described and analysed. Comparison between the different sources is worked out. ...

Video/text Applications of accelerators to tumour therapy
Description By Ugo Amaldi, 2008. The first lecture is devoted to an historical review of the developments of the teletherapy techniques which make use of hadron beams and are collectively called "hadrontherapy". The main emphasis is on the use of protons and light ions, but also neutrons, pions and antiprotons are considered. ...

Video/text Acceleration of particles in plasmas
Description By J. Faure, 2007. Plasma acceleration has been an emerging and fast growing field of research in the past two decades. In this series of lectures, we will review the principles of plasma acceleration. We will see how relativistic plasma waves can be excited using an ultra-intense laser or using a particle beam. We will see how these plasma waves can be used to accelerate electrons to high energy in short distances. ...
