Large transverse wake fields can be generated via the interaction between a relativistic electron or positron bunch and a plasma, and the bunch will therefore be self-pinched. In this paper we derive a new and general formulation for the plasma wake field in a compact expression. We then suggest that this self-focusing effect can be used as a mechanism to… CONTINUE READING
