ABSTRACT
A relativistic bunch moving in the vicinity of a dielectric slab excites Cerenkov radiation. The spectrum of this radiation depends on the dielectric coefficient, the energy of the bunch and its geometric shape. If the dielectric slab is active and the bunch excites the proper frequency, the wake will be amplified. We determine the dependence of the spatial growth of the bunch on the geometric and optical parameters of the system. The wake propagation in the active medium is analyzed and compared with the spontaneous radiation generated and amplified in the medium.
