Melting Thin Foils by Incident Relativistic Electron Bunch
Stupakov, Gennady.
We calculate the electric currents induced in a metal foil by an impinging relativistic beam and the foil heating due to the ohmic losses in the foil. Conditions when the foil melts are obtained and calculated for three metals: titanium, beryllium and tungsten, and for several beam parameters relevant for the FACET experiment at SLAC.
