Charged Particles in Electromagnetic Fields
The most obvious components of particle accelerators and beam transport systems are those that provide the beam guidance system. Whatever the application may be, a beam of charged particles is designed to follow closely a predescribed path along a desired beam transport line or along a closed orbit in case of circular accelerators. The forces required to bend and direct the charged particle beam or to hold particles close to the ideal path are known as the Lorentz forces and are derived from electric and magnetic fields through the Lorentz equation.
