Cosmic Plasma Wakefield Acceleration

  title={Cosmic Plasma Wakefield Acceleration},
  author={Pisin Chen and Toshiki Tajima and Yoshiyuki Takahashi},
Recently we proposed a new cosmic acceleration mechanism which was based on the wakefields excited by the Alfven shocks in a relativistically flowing plasma. In this paper we include some omitted details, and show that there exists a threshold condition for transparency below which the accelerating particle is collision-free and suffers little energy loss… CONTINUE READING
