Accelerator Physics

Welcome! In here, you will find pages I wrote on accelerator physics topics, including learning tips, useful links to resources, some interesting research updates, computational accelerator physics, etc.

Accelerator physics was my Ph.D. major and I am an honored graduate of Prof. SY Lee’s (Prof. Lee’s website) group at Indiana University Bloomington (IUB). Prof. Lee is one of the most knowledgable accelerator physicists in the world I know of. I gratefully got my Ph.D. degree from a Joint Ph.D. program between IUB and Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (Fermilab), where I did the design and simulations of a very innovative idea: nuSTORM (neutrinos from STORed Muons). My supervisors at Fermilab were Dr. Alan Bross and Dr. David Neuffer.

I learned a lot from my three supervisors. I believe knowledge tastes the best when shared with others. So, here I am. I hope the shared information can help you in your own research or studies of accelerator physics.

Now I work with a small business company funded primarily by the U.S. Department of Energy (DoE) to do accelerator-related research. I am interested in many accelerator topics, especially development of novel algorithms/methods for accelerator physics. I am also interested in commercializing accelerator-related products. Feel free to contact me to discuss with me: ao@aoliu.tech

Enjoy!
