A method is proposed for the damping of synchrotron and betatron oscillations of heavy particles, which makes use of the sharp increase in the cross section for the interaction of these particles with electrons at small relative velocity. It is shown that it is possible by this method to compress strongly the proton and antiproton bunches in storage rings, and also to achieve multiple storage of these particles.
