- Longitudinal beam compression is essential to produce the requisite peak power for driving ICF targets; it could also produce the proper pulse shapes. Realistic effects of quadrupole focusing and displaced beam centroid in the presence of space charge are being studied with the help of the 3D ARGUS particle-in-cell (PIC) code. We discuss the results and code development for these studies.
