Study of drift compression for heavy ion beams

  • HONG QIN (a1) and RONALD C. DAVIDSON (a1)


The longitudinal dynamics of drift compression and pulse shaping for a space-charge-dominated heavy ion fusion beam is studied. A nonperiodic quadrupole lattice is designed for a beam undergoing drift compression, and an adiabatically matched solution is found for the transverse envelope equations in the nonperiodic lattice.
