  journal={arXiv: Plasma Physics},
Fluid simulations, which are considerably simpler and faster, have been employed to study the behavior of the wakefield driven by a relativistic rigid beam in a 2-D cold plasma. When the transverse dimensions of the beam are chosen to be much larger than its longitudinal extent, a good agreement with our previous 1-D results [\textcolor{red}{\it Physics of Plasmas 22, 073109 (2015)}] are observed for both under-dense and over-dense beams. When the beam is overdense and its transverse extent is… 


Fluid simulation of relativistic electron beam driven wakefield in a cold plasma
Excitation of wakefield in a cold homogeneous plasma, driven by an ultra-relativistic electron beam is studied in one dimension using fluid simulation techniques. For a homogeneous rigid beam having
Theory of wake‐field effects of a relativistic electron beam propagating in a plasma
A theoretical description of the wake‐field effects is presented for a relativistic electron beam propagating through a tenuous background plasma. When the electron beam enters the plasma chamber, it
A nonlinear theory for multidimensional relativistic plasma wave wakefieldsa)
A nonlinear kinetic theory for multidimensional plasma wave wakes with phase velocities near the speed of light is presented. This theory is appropriate for describing plasma wakes excited in the
Observation of plasma wakefield acceleration in the underdense regime
Initial experiments which have explored the physics of the underdense (blowout) regime of the plasma wakefield accelerator (PWFA) at the Argonne Wakefield Accelerator facility are reported. In this
Observation of 1-D time dependent non-propagating laser plasma structures using fluid and PIC codes
The manuscript reports the observation of time dependent localized and non-propagating structures in the coupled laser plasma system through 1-D fluid and Particle-In-Cell (PIC) simulations. It is
The stability of 1-D soliton in transverse direction
The complete characterization of the exact 1-D solitary wave solutions (both stationary and propagating) for light plasma coupled system have been studied extensively in the parameter space of light
Controlled injection and acceleration of electrons in plasma wakefields by colliding laser pulses
It is demonstrated that the injection and subsequent acceleration of electrons can be controlled by using a second laser pulse, and the electron beams obtained are stable and tuneable, and compatible with electron bunch durations shorter than 10 fs.
Energy doubling of 42 GeV electrons in a metre-scale plasma wakefield accelerator
An energy gain of more than 42 GeV is achieved in a plasma wakefield accelerator of 85 cm length, driven by a 42‬GeV electron beam at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC), in excellent agreement with the predictions of three-dimensional particle-in-cell simulations.
Phase mixing of relativistically intense waves in a cold homogeneous plasma.
Calculations presented here in the weakly relativistic limit clearly show that under very general initial conditions, a relativistically intense wave will always phase mix and eventually break at arbitrarily low amplitudes, in a time scale omegapetaumix.
