Applications of magnetized plasma to particle acceleration

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Magnetized plasma can be used as an accelerating structure capable of supporting large amplitude longitudinal fields which are externally driven by a high-frequency microwave source. Such structures can be used at very high frequencies (hundreds of gigahertz), placing them in the intermediate region between conventional (metallic) accelerators, and laser-driven plasma accelerators. They review two magnetic field configurations with respect to the direction of the particle beam propagation: (1) parallel magnetic field plus a helical undulator, and (2) perpendicular magnetic field. In the first configuration, plasma exhibits electromagnetically induced transparency (EIT) at the cyclotron frequency if the plasma frequency is equal ... continued below

Description

Magnetized plasma can be used as an accelerating structure capable of supporting large amplitude longitudinal fields which are externally driven by a high-frequency microwave source. Such structures can be used at very high frequencies (hundreds of gigahertz), placing them in the intermediate region between conventional (metallic) accelerators, and laser-driven plasma accelerators. They review two magnetic field configurations with respect to the direction of the particle beam propagation: (1) parallel magnetic field plus a helical undulator, and (2) perpendicular magnetic field. In the first configuration, plasma exhibits electromagnetically induced transparency (EIT) at the cyclotron frequency if the plasma frequency is equal to the electron cyclotron frequency. The second configuration corresponds to the inverse Cherenkov effect in magnetized plasma. In both cases, the group velocity of the accelerating plasma wave can be made very small, so that the incident electromagnetic wave is strongly compressed, resulting in the high accelerating gradient.
