Abstract:

The objective of this program is to compress an electron beam by a factor of 1000 and to gain an understanding of the behavior of the beam. The experimental approach involves the probing of a scaled-up beam in suitable magnetic fields and the subsequent demonstration of compression in a sealed-off tube with a beam of the correct size. The theoretical approach has been to extend the linear optical theory to include nonlinear effects. Author
