    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


    A high energy, intense and short proton bunch can be employed to excite a high amplitude plasma wakefield for electron beam acceleration. In this paper, several bunch compression scenarios are analyzed. One-stage and two-stage bunch compression schemes to compress the proton bunch from the Super Proton Synchrotron (SPS) for the future experimental studies of the proton driven plasma wakefield acceleration at CERN are discussed. The simulation results of bunch compression are given.
