Abstract

We discuss the wake wave-breaking that occurs due to the inhomogeneity of the Langmuir frequency with the aim of exploiting this wave-breaking to inject electrons into the acceleration phase of the wave. Particle in cell simulations show that stable'beams of energetic electrons are formed. These beams are well bunched in coordinate and velocity space and… (More)
