Abstract
The quest for deepened understanding of the origin of the universe requires continued search for elementary particles, for which high-energy accelerators are necessary tools. Reducing the size, complexity, and cost for future accelerators is essential if they are ever to be built. New technologies that can underlie future accelerators are needed to meet these goals, including that proposed here. A coaxial, two-beam dielectric wake field accelerator is proposed that appears to embody the possibility of high acceleration gradient, high efficiency, high transformer ratio, and good beam stability. These features are made possible by the use a tailored ramped annular drive bunch train. Commercial Applications and Other Benefits: Features of the coaxial two-beam dielectric wake field accelerator listed above hold promise for reducing the size, complexity, and cost for a future high-energy collider. Lower energy versions of this accelerator may find applications in medical diagnostics and therapy, industrial processing, and national security.
