However, in numerical calculations performed by Shepelyansky for the kicked rotor with a cubic nonlinear term, Anderson localization (that takes place in the absence of the nonlinear term) was destroyed and sub-diffusion takes place.

We refer to this transfer of transverse momentum to the beam as RF breakdown kick and we observed that it does not depend on the amount of power dissipated by a breakdown nor on the location at which a breakdown takes place.

The worst place where a breakdown kick can happen in CLIC is at the beginning of the main linac where the beam energy is 9 GeV.
