title: Remarks on short wavelength free electron lasers
format: conference proceeding
conference: Conference on Nonlinear and Relativistic Effects in Plasmas
year: 1992
1 author: C. Pellegrini
abstract: The author reviews the main physics issues and the scaling laws for short wavelength free electron lasers. The author discusses the two main operating modes, oscillator and self amplified spontaneous emission. The author also compares different electron beam drivers, like RF linacs and storage rings. The favourable scaling laws and the recent progress in FELs physics and technology show that the FEL is a good candidate for a tunable soft-X-ray laser. (38 References).

title: Nonlinear plasma and beam physics in plasma wake-fields
format: conference proceeding
conference: Conference on Nonlinear and Relativistic Effects in Plasmas
year: 1992
1 author: J.B. Rosenzweig
abstract: In experimental studies of the plasma wake-field accelerator performed to date at the Argonne Advanced Accelerator Test Facility, significant nonlinearities in both plasma and beam behavior have been observed. The plasma waves driven in the wake of the intense driving beam in these experiments exhibit three-dimensional nonlinear behavior which has as yet no quantitative theoretical explanation. This nonlinearity is due in part to the self-pinching of the driving beam in the plasma, as the denser self-focused beam can excite larger amplitude plasma waves. The self-pinching is a process with interesting nonlinear aspects: the initial evolution of the beam envelope and the subsequent approach to Bennett equilibrium through phase mixing. (35 References).
