The high azimuthal magnetic field of a current-carrying plasma column (z-pinch) can be used to collect and focus high-energy charged particles in accelerators. The beam optics and the apparent advantages of such a linear lens compared with conventional focusing devices, such as magnets and magnetic horns, are described. When a plasma lens shall be operated in routine accelerator runs, the physics of the plasma dynamics must be largely understood and the technology has to be mastered. The… CONTINUE READING
