Particle acceleration by rf-fields has been discussed, for example, in considerable detail in [143, 144] where relationships between longitudinal phase oscillation and beam stability are derived and discussed. The accelerating fields were assumed to be available in resonant cavities, but we ignored conditions that must be met to generate such fields and ensure positive energy transfer to the particle beam. In this chapter, we will discuss relevant characteristics of rf-cavities and study the interaction of the rf-generator with accelerating cavity and beam.
