- This paper expands on a few important details of the Wakeatron concept. This is a device where electrons can be accelerated by the wake field of short intense proton bunches travelling along the axis of an rf structure. Specifically, we have examined the consequences of the longitudinal dynamics of both the electron and the proton bunches. Included were ''mixing'' in the proton bunches (crucial to the overall concept) and phase shifts (electron bunches relative to proton bunches) in the acceleration process. Because of the deterioration of the proton bunches, due to the ''mixing'' process, it is required that the Wakeatron is indeed staged in a number of consecutive sections.
