Coherent Electron Cooling
Coherent Electron Cooling is an exciting concept towards cooling ion beams through amplification of charge distributions in electron beams. This method promises extremely fast cooling virtually independent of energy of the ions. Recently, the performance of ERLs allows the use of the FEL amplification mechanism to realize Coherent Electron Cooling at high ion energies.
