Compared to classical calculations, quantum corrections greatly reduce the radiation emitted when the e + and e -; beams collide in a linear collider. This allows a given luminosity to be obtained with much lower beam powers by making the beam size smaller.
The laser focus accelerator with relativistic self‐focusing for achieving Z‐separated heavy ions of energies beyond 10 GeV was studied experimentally, in detailed numerical work and estimations on intense muon sources, heavy nuclear collisions and generation of new isotopes are on the way....
Phase and amplitude considerations are made for a Two‐Beam Accelerator and analytic formulas are obtained expressing the phase and amplitude errors in terms of magnetic wiggler errors, beam energy errors, beam current errors, and microwave field amplitude errors. The necessity of phase and...
The second workshop on laser acceleration of particles confirmed the promise and likely payoff of a variety of schemes.(AIP)
Periodic structures consisting of rows of spherical conductors in a plasma linac is considered. Field configurations have been investigated using copper spheres approximately 11 cm diameter and microwave radiation of approximately 30 cm wavelength.(AIP)
Acceleration modes are defined, and their general characteristics in open structures are discussed. Some simple examples are given. Circumstances under which the number of such modes is small are elucidated. Various approaches to the transverse stability problem are discussed.
The beat wave accelerator 1 depends on the generation of a large amplitude plasma wave with a phase velocity close to the velocity of light c. The plasma wave (ω; p , k p ) is generated by beating colinear laser beams (ω; 1 ,k 1 ) and (ω; 2 ,k 2 ) with ω; p =ω; 1 -ω; 2 , k p =k 1 -k; 2 ....
A new scheme of electron acceleration, employing relativistic electron bunches in a cold plasma, is analyzed. The wake field of a leading bunch is derived in a single‐particle model. We then extend the model to include finite bunch length effect. In particular, we discuss the relation between...
The prospect of achieving very high accelerating fields has led to proposals for using electrostatic plasma waves to accelerate charged particles for high energy physics. It has been predicted theoretically that these plasma waves can be driven by the wake fields of short bunches, or trains of...
