What is beam loading?
•
The placing of a bunch charge on an accelerating structure to extract energy
with high efficiency, small energy spread, and emittance preservation.
•
This involves understanding:
 how much charge can be loaded.
 where to place the charge.
 and how to shape the charge.
•
There is not much in the literature on how to do this for plasma
wakes
Beam Loading
linear regime
[1] T. Katsouleas, S. Wilks, P. Chen, J. M. Dawson, J. J. Su  Part. Accel, 1987
•
In the linear regime one
superimposes the wake by trailer
to the wake by the driver to find
the total wakefield [1].
•
Bunch shaping for no energy
spread: Triangular.
•
The total charge can be found by
requiring that all of the energy in
the wake is absorbed.
•
Works for electron and positron
loads.
Original simulation results: 1987
•
In linear theory just use superposition:
Add wakes =>
Drive beam (laser or particle beam)
Note that wedge gives nearly constant
decelerating field
Properly phased trailing beam of
particles: Loads wake

What does linear theory tell us?
Our interpretation
•
Emittance can only be preserved in two limits:
a. very narrow beam loads
b. very wide drive beams
•
Wide beams (multiple wavelengths) are ruled out for stability reasons
•
Narrow witness beams can only absorb energy of the wake out to a skin
depth so driver must be ~a skin depth or efficiency is low.
•
The trailing beam’s profile effects the accelerating and transverse fields
 nonlinear focusing fields
 transverse variation of E
z
 phase slippage can be an issue
•
But, narrow beams with high charge themselves make nonlinear
wakes.
Nonlinear physics is unavoidable for either PWFA or LWFA

Uniform accelerating field

Nonlinear wakeﬁelds are completely characterized by
the trajectory of the blowout radius
W. Lu et al., Phys. Rev. Lett. 16, 16500 (2006)
The trajectory of the inner most particle is
Space charge of beam

of laser
Two distinct limits:
Nonrelativistic blowout
Ultrarelativistic blowout
(behind the driver)
Nearly a circle!
This provides a physical picture and theory for
beam loading of nonlinear laser driven or electron
driven wakes from by electron beams
M. Tzoufras, submitted
•
The behavior in Regions I and
III is identical.
•
Region II:

The innermost particle
stops returns to the axis
more slowly.

This reduces Ez and is how
the wake is loaded.

The trajectory can actually
turn around: wakefield
goes to zero inside the
bunch

Focusing fields are not
perturbed by the beam!
Analytical solutions are possible
Assume that the blowout radius is large
For large blowout radius:
This can be integrated once to yield:
In Region I (and Region III):
The electric field must be continuous so solutions for each region need to be
matched.
Optimum bunch profile
Condition for constant wakefield:
The optimal profile is a trapezoid.
The wakefield and the trajectory for
this profile are:
Veriﬁed in fully nonlinear PIC
simulations using OSIRIS
High efﬁciencies are possible
Superposition does not work
Efficiency
•
There is a tradeoff between maximum
charge and maximum energy
•
In the blowout regime the energy gain
per unit length is orders of magnitude
higher than that in the linear regime.
•
For nonlinear beam loading the
efficiency approaches 100%, while E
z
is constant in z and r.

Phase slippage / Gaussian bunches
Flattop bunch:
•
Analytical solutions have been found for
any charge per unit length.
•
The efficiency is the same as for the
trapezoidal bunch.
•
For such a bunch,
phase slippage will
not damage the beam quality
.
•
A Gaussian bunch behaves similarly.

Density wake of
scale beams
R. Gholizadeh USC
Conclusions and perspectives
A new theory for beam loading of electrons in nonlinear wakes was developed
Key differences between beam loading in linear and nonlinear wakes:
The volume of the wake energy left behind is smaller than ahead in nonlinear
theory
100 % beam load efﬁciency with high gradient is therefore possible with shaped
bunches in nonlinear theory
The selfwake of the beam load in linear theory effects the focusing force and
the radial dependence of the accelerating forces on later particles in the witness
bunch. In nonlinear theory the selfwake does not because blowout is complete.
Properly phased Gaussian bunches ﬂatten the wake better in nonlinear theory
leading to smaller energy spread.
Optimal shape is almost square in nonlinear theory and a reverse triangle in
linear theory.
Background:
Beam loading, Linear regime
•
For ultrashort beams the maximum particle number is [1]:
•
Issues affecting the energy spread:
 phase slippage (dephasing).
 transverse variation of the accelerating field:
•
Low emittance requires narrow beams.
•
Blowout will happen unless the charge is very low.
