Beam–Material Interactions

N.V. Mokhov, F. Cerutti


This paper is motivated by the growing importance of better understanding of the phenomena and consequences of high-intensity energetic particle beam
interactions with accelerator, generic target, and detector components. It reviews the principal physical processes of fast-particle interactions with matter, effects in materials under irradiation, materials response, related to component lifetime and performance, simulation techniques, and methods of mitigating the impact of radiation on the components and environment in challenging current and future applications.


Particle physics simulation; material irradiation effects; accelerator design.
