Wakefield Acceleration: Concepts and Machines

  • Perry B. Wilson
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 178)


An introduction of the basic concepts of wakefields and wake potentials is presented in Richard K. Cooper’s paper “Wake Fields: Limitations and Possibilities” in these proceedings. In this lecture we explore the possibility of using wakefield concepts to accelerate electrons and positrons to the high energies required by the next generation of linear colliders.
