Intrabeam scattering and halo formation in intense ion beams

An essential problem for the operation of high current linacs is the control of beam losses due to halo formation. Here we concentrate on an interplay between intrabeam scattering (IBS) and the incidence of particles which are driven to high amplitudes by resonances with the nonlinear space charge fields of a mismatched beam. For these studies, we developed a particlecore-molecular-dynamics (PCMD) method which suitably joins the time evolution in framework of the envelope equations and a

Our first results strongly suggest, that IBS in fact supports the halo formation in a mismatched beam. CP606, Non-Neutral Plasma Physics IV, edited by F. Anderegg et al.
