Why are beam currents in, more in particular, electron - positron colliders and similar installations only reach values of a few hundred mA. Is it because higher beam current values are simply not neaded for research, is it due to limmited values of power availible, limmited values of outer pressure on manipulating magnets, safety reasons in case of some containment failure or for some other reason ? Thank you !
