Proton beam self-modulation seeded by electron bunch in plasma with density ramp

Seeded self-modulation in a plasma can transform a long proton beam into a train of micro-bunches that can excite a strong wakefield over long distances, but this needs the plasma to have a certain

Controlled Growth of the Self-Modulation of a Relativistic Proton Bunch in Plasma.

A long, narrow, relativistic charged particle bunch propagating in plasma is subject to the self-modulation (SM) instability. We show that SM of a proton bunch can be seeded by the wakefields driven

Physics Program and Experimental for AWAKE Run 2

AWAKE aims at exploring the possibility to accelerate externally injected electrons to high energies in wakefields driven by a self-modulated proton bunch. Experiments performed during Run 1

Self-modulation instability of a long proton bunch in plasmas.

It is shown that the self-modulation of the proton bunch competes with the hosing instability which tends to destroy the plasma wave, and a method is proposed and studied through PIC simulations to circumvent this problem, which relies on the seeding of theSelf-Modulation instability in the bunch.

Plasma Focusing for High-Energy Beams

We analyze the self-focusing effect of a relativistic electron or positron beam traversing through a thin slab of plasma in a linearized fluid theory, and show that the effect is very strong. The

JACoW : Effect of Proton Bunch Parameter Variation on AWAKE

We show that the phase of the wakefields as the CERN SPS proton bunch experiences the self-modulation instability is very weakly dependent on variations of the bunch parameters by ±5%. There is a ≈

Towards Awake Applications: Electron Beam Acceleration in a Proton Driven Plasma Wake

The first phases of the AWAKE experiment will study the wake structure and the potential for electron acceleration in a self-modulated proton driver, and demonstrating beam quality preservation and scalable plasma sources will be a significant step towards using proton driven plasma for applications.

Long-term evolution of broken wakefields in finite-radius plasmas.

A novel effect of fast heating and charging a finite-radius plasma is discovered in the context of plasma wakefield acceleration and contains (together with hot electrons) up to 80% of the initial wakefield energy.

PHYSICS OF THE AWAKE PROJECT

We briefly describe the physics goals of the AWAKE experiment proposed at CERN. AWAKE is a plasma wakefield acceleration (PWFA) experiment using the SPS proton bunch as a PWFA driver. These goals
