The article discusses the importance of modifying motion systems to manipulate optics, particle beams, and measurement devices in ultrahigh-vacuum (UHV) environments. It explores different critical design features, appropriate selection, as well as material preparation for both standard and UHV qualified devices. Furthermore, it suggests he need to evaluate and control all aspects of mechanical design, selection, and fabrication of actual actuators to ensure accuracy of their applications.

    Most simulations of intense particle beams are performed nowadays using Particle In Cell (PIC) techniques. Direct grid based Vlasov methods have also been used but mostly for 1D simulations as they become very costly in higher dimensions when using uniform phase space grids. We have recently...
