Accelerating Structures / Degiovanni, Alberto (CERN)
In this lecture the basic concepts of electromagnetic waves in accelerating structures are discussed. After a short introduction on the propagation of electromagnetic waves and on the concept of travelling wave and standing wave structures, the most important parameters and figures of merit used to describe the acceleration efficiency and the performance of accelerating structures in terms of power consumption is presented.

Ion Sources for Medical Applications / Gammino, Santo (INFN, LNS)
Ion sources are key components of accelerators devoted to different types of medical applications: hadron-therapy facilities (accelerating protons or carbon ions), high-intensity accelerators for boron-neutron capture therapy (using intense proton beams), and facilities for isotope production (using different ion species). The three types of application present different requirements in terms of ion beam quality, reproducibility, and beam availability. [...]

Dose Delivery Concept and Instrumentation / Giordanengo, Simona (INFN, Turin) ; Donetti, Marco (CNAO, Milan)
Radiation therapy aims to deliver the prescribed amount of dose to a tumour at the same time as sparing the surrounding tissues as much as possible. In charged particle therapy, delivering the prescribed dose is equivalent to delivering the prescribed number of ions of a given energy at each position of the irradiation field. [...]
