  • Thank you for the opportunity to speak here at the postech meeting.. I enjoy the opportunity to visit Korea, and interact with my colleagues in KERI on intense lasers and to find out about new developments in your la boratory.
    Today's talk will present an overview of research on advanced accelerator concepts, starting first with the question: why is it important to pursue work on accelerators, and exploring some of the ideas currently under investigation. While part of this talk will be on neutrino factories and muon colliders, which are really tools used by particle physicists (so far, at least), the other ideas are quite general, and are likely to find their first applications in fields other than particle physics.
    Specially important have been Andy Charman, Ryan Lindberg and Gregg Penn.
    Along the way, I hope to show you that the ideas that we have to address in this work are fundamental ones.
  • the famous Livingston curve, where the energy of accelerators is plotted on a log scale—for high energy physics and light sources-- as a function of the date of operation. Careful examination will show that high energy physics has fallen off the curve. The next x-ray sources will not be off the curve, but scale and cost lead to concern for the future.
    First, these machines are, with the exception of the SLC, storage rings.
    Second, there are fewer Hardron machines than there are e-p machines--Hadron machines were already getting big by 1970, but e-p could still built in many places, as they were not yet large. With LEP, and the LC, this of course, is no longer true.
    At each fall off of a technology a new one has come to the rescue. The winning approach for colliders has yet to be found (muons??). For light sources, I believe the scale and cost is low enough and the demand high enough that we will see significant progress over the next couple of years.
    There many ways that advanced accelerators physics are contributing to other fields.
  • It was realized by the designers of early accelerators that synchrotron radiation will put a fundamental limit on the
    Energy obtainable in circular machines. The basic facts—that a clump of particles radiates as Nxsingle particle so long as the
    Clump, or bunch, as is commonly used, is long, was known many in the fourties. It was not until the 60s, however, that people realized that this radiation could be a fundamental tool for exploring matter. This began a 50 year tradition of condensed matter and more recently bio-physicists, benefiting from the hand-me-downs of HEP.
  • Finally, these machines are colliders. That is, two counter moving beams are collided together. In proton machines, such as the tevatron, beams circulate for more orbits than the earth has made around the sun. The physics questions that arose in the design of these machines motivated, and the scientists involved contributed to, our understanding of the long-time stability of dynamical systems.
    As you certainly have felt here in Texas, the large accelerators that have pushed high energy physics
    forward for close to a century are now approaching a scale that is beyond what society may be willing to support.
    At the same time, light sources, which originated as high-energy hand-me downs, are continuing this tradition, with the building of the LCLS X-ray (.17nm) FEL at SLAC, and a similar facility planned in DESY. They too cannot get much bigger!
    Let’s take a took at the next big accelerator that the high-energy community would like to build.
  • charged particles interact with their electromagnetic environment. It is this
    interaction that of course allows us to accelerate them---we couple into the field that they naturally
    will tend to produce--stimulated emission. But, we must beware--beams
    are self-destructive as they interact with their environment.
  • Desy A pulsed beam of atoms and clusters was illuminated with ~100-fs-long FEL pulses at 98 nm wavelength focussed into a small spot (20 μm diameter) and a power density of up to 7*1013W/cm2. Xenon atoms and clusters are chosen because they can be ionized even by single 12.7 eV photons (the ionisation potential of Xe atoms is 12.1 eV). The resulting ions are detected with a time-of-flight (TOF) mass spectrometer.
  • Follow with cascade with comp theory/exp
  • This is the basic idea that drove plasma accelerators for many years, and has been quite challenging
    to deliver on. Plasmas are not not metal. Look at the top structure, carefully machined, polished,
    vacuum baked to reduce outgassing, and, if cared for, will provide years of good service.
    Now what is this plasma? It not so easy to control---no fusion! It is a hot ionized gas, and one
    cannot form it like a piece of metal. Or can one? John Dawson, who originated and pushed these
    ideas along Toshi tajima from UT, understood that by doing things fast, before
    the ions move, or by controlling their motion,
    that some structures in plasmas can be built. BUT they will not lsat. Ions will move at micons/ns,, so dont waste anytime.
    But this story has a good turn--while the cartoon above has not been
    realized, recent experiments by group at LBL (Leemans group), Malka in France and
    a group at RAL have recently seen well formed 100MeV beams of a feww hundred pico coulombs
    emerging from their experiments. I tell you about this. First how do we make ssructures

    12. 12. Phase space manipulation Manipulate beam phase space can have many advantages: Enhanced gain Seeding radiation pulse for harmonic cascades Attosecond pulses Synchronization Relax beam quality constraints (conditioning) Lower energy for given wavelength Many of these ideas are realized by laser interactions with the electron beam prior to the radiation generation. Some examples…

The idea is to condition and select specific slices of electrons to radiate differently (in direction, frequency, intensity, etc.).
