Beam-Cavity Interaction

  • Helmut Wiedemann


The proper operation of the rf-system in a particle accelerator depends more than any other component on the detailed interaction with the particle beam. This results from the observation that a particle beam can induce fields in the accelerating cavities of significant magnitude compared to the generator produced voltages and we may therefore not neglect the presence of the particle beam. This phenomenon is called beam loading and can place severe restrictions on the beam current that can be accelerated. In this chapter, main features of such interaction and stability conditions for most efficient and stable particle acceleration will be discussed.
