The aim of this study was 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.
