EVOLVING BUNCH AND RETARDATION IN THE IMPEDANCE FORMALISM *

R. Warnockt, SLAC, Stanford, CA 94309 and M. Venturini, LBNL, Berkeley, CA 94720Abstract

The usual expression for the longitudinal wake field in

terms of the impedance is exact only for the model in which

the source of the field is a rigid bunch. To account for a de-

forming bunch one has to invoke the complete impedance,

a function of both wave number and frequency. A compu-

tation of the corresponding wake field would be expensive,

since it would involve integrals over frequency and time

in addition to the usual sum over wave number. We treat

the problem of approximating this field in an example of

current interest, the case of coherent synchrotron radiation

(CSR) in the presence of shielding by the vacuum chamber.

Consider a rigid bunch moving on a circular trajectory

of radius R. A test particle feels a voltage

V(O, t)= woQ ) eng--wotZ(n)An , (1)

where 0 - wt is the azimuthal angle between the test par-

ticle and the reference particle, the latter having revolution

frequency w, o 3Oc/R. The impedance at azimuthal mode

number n (wave number n/R) is Z(n). The mode ampli-

tude An is the Fourier transform of the line density A(0) in

the bunch rest frame. With f A(0)dO 1 the total charge

is Q. For the case of a deforming bunch one's first inclina-

tion is merely to replace An in (1) by An(t). The resulting

formula (or its equivalent statement in terms of a wake po-

tential) has been used in dynamical calculations based on

the Vlasov-Fokker-Planck equation [1, 2, 3, 4], and in ear-

lier macroparticle simulations. In such work An (or A(0)) is

updated at each time step according to the values of exter-

nal and coherent forces at the previous step. Although the

calculations seem successful in many respects, the simple

replacement An - An (t) is a first approximation of un-

certain accuracy, especially in an unstable regime of rapid

bunch evolution.

Our object here is to derive this first approximation

and systematic corrections. We do so in an analytically

solvable model, the case of particles on circular trajecto-

ries between two infinite parallel plates, perfectly conduct-

ing. The plates represent the vacuum chamber, which sup-

presses CSR at wavelengths greater than a certain "shield-

ing cutoff'. This model has considerable utility in spite of

its simplified view of a real system; it led to interesting re-

The field equations are solved in cylindrical coordinates

(r, 0, y), with y-axis perpendicular to the plates and origin

midway between the plates of separation h. We allow an

arbitrary but fixed distribution of charge in the y-direction,

with density H(y) , f H(y)dy 1. The full charge den-

sity has the form p(O, t) QA(0-wt, t)H(y)(r -R)/R.

We make a Laplace transform of the Maxwell equations

and the charge/current density in time, assuming that the

charge and the fields are zero before t 0. We also

make Fourier transforms in 0 and y, the Fourier series in

y chosen to satisfy the boundary conditions of fields on

the plates. Then the transformed field equations can be

solved in terms of Bessel functions. The Fourier/Laplace

transform of the longitudinal electric field (averaged over

the vertical distribution H(y)) will be denoted as E(n, o).

Here o u + iv , v > 0 is a complex frequency,

while the Laplace transform variable conjugate to time is

s -io. By linearity of the field equations, -2wRE is

proportional to the corresponding transform of the current,

with a proportionality constant Z(n, o) called the complete

impedance: -2RE(n, o) Z(n, o)I(n, o).

on p corresponds to modes in the Fourier expansion with

respect to y. The factor AP depends on the vertical dis-

tribution H(y), and is zero for even p if H is even. For
