Transverse Beam Dynamics in Plasma-based Linacs


The transverse beam dynamics in plasma channels of possible future plasma-based linacs is discussed. We represent the transverse focusing of both a beam-driven and a laser-driven plasma wakefield accelerator by a uniform focusing channel. The transverse beam sizes and a basic offset tolerance are calculated, finding that sub-micron beams must be transported with even smaller offset tolerances. The results emphasize the need to pursue further ideas for plasma structures with high acceleration gradients but reduced transverse wakefields.

The PDF version of this document was distilled from a PostScript file created from LaTeX source which may have used Type 3 fonts. The resultant PDF may be unreadable on the screen at the default viewing magnification, though the fonts will be legible at slightly higher magnifications.

Despite the cosmetic problems resulting from the Type 3 fonts, such PDF files print without problems; likewise, the onscreen text is searchable and selectable.
