Beam Optics

Bending magnet
90 degree bending magnet

Whether or not a beam is strong enough to have an effect on the E or B field, LORENTZ is commonly used to characterize optical components along beam lines. LORENTZ 2D includes a mode for computing the optical coefficients (focal points, aberration coefficients, etc.) of axi-symmetric electric beam components.

Some examples:

  • Focusing electrodes
  • Steering magnets
  • Electron microscopes
  • Multipole beamline magnets
