Enhanced particle acceleration via cascade of autoresonance detrappings
Research is being carried out in order to enhance the acceleration of electrons by repeating consecutively a basic accelerating mechanism. This mechanism consists of trapping the particles in a travelling ponderomotive well, then autoresonance detrapping them allowing for considerable acceleration. The travelling well is generated by two-counterpropagating electromagnetic waves along a uniform magnetic field.
