Microbunched Electron Cooling for Hadrons
Ratner, Daniel.
Electron and stochastic cooling are proven methods for cooling low energy hadron beams, but at present there is no way of cooling hadrons as they near the TeV scale. In the 1980s, Derbenev suggested that electron instabilities, such as the Free Electron Laser, could create collective space charge fields strong enough to correct the hadron energies. This letter presents an alternative electron cooling scheme using the microbunching instability as the amplifier. A simple analytical model illustrat... Show Full Abstract
Electron and stochastic cooling are proven methods for cooling low energy hadron beams, but at present there is no way of cooling hadrons as they near the TeV scale. In the 1980s, Derbenev suggested that electron instabilities, such as the Free Electron Laser, could create collective space charge fields strong enough to correct the hadron energies. This letter presents an alternative electron cooling scheme using the microbunching instability as the amplifier. A simple analytical model illustrates the cooling mechanism and simulations show cooling rates for realistic parameters. Show Partial Abstract
