Electron Storage Ring Longitudinal Emittance

  1. Jul 6, 2009 #1
    Can anyone explain how to relate the bunch length and energy spread of a bunch in an electron storage ring to the longitudinal emittance? Also, if you know of a good reference I could use to look up more information I would really appreciate it. Thanks!

    Here is the link to the Brookhaven National Synchrotron Light Source Preliminary Design Report (44 MB):
    Here is the chapter on accelerator physics:
    There is also a good book by Alex Chao on Accelerator Physics and Engineering
    Here is a free download of Stanley Humphries book on accelerator physics:
