Video: Wakefield model of CLIC PETS

This animation of a computer simulation shows excited electromagnetic wakefields as a low-energy, high-current particle drive beam passes through a power extraction and transfer structure (PETS), part of the Compact Linear Collider design. The PETS supplies power for a second, main particle accelerator. Reds and yellows indicate strong fields; greens and yellows indicate weaker fields.
