Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Particle accelerators, devices that produce beams of charged particles that can be used for a variety of research purposes, are indispensable research tools in nuclear physics, high-energy physics, condensed matter physics, medical science and materials science. It is well known that the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is the largest currently active accelerator. In recent decades, the development of advanced accelerator technologies and their applications have been remarkable. Symmetries are at the core of many aspects of fundamental physics. Hereby, the goal of this Special Issue in Symmetry is to cover a broad range of topics on the fast-developing technology in particle accelerators from both theory and application angles.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Symmetry is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.

Beam position monitor (BPM) characterization has been widely studied at the synchrotron. The characteristic impedance of a stripline BPM was designed using a simulation and measured using the time-domain reflectometer method. The mechanical and electrical parameters of the feedthroughs with the buttons used for the BPMs were measured. Special care was taken in the analysis of the consistency of the four channels of the BPM. The feedthroughs were sorted based on their capacitance values. This paper presents the characterization results of the feedthroughs and BPMs. The electro-mechanical offsets were measured using the Lambertson method, and the calibration coefficients were measured using a stretched wire. The BPM differences introduced during mass production were determined by a statistical analysis of the measurement results. Full article
