Recently it was shown that charged particles motion in the field of standing electromagnetic wave can undergo the features similar to the particles channeling in crystals. When a charged particle enters the channels formed by electromagnetic standing waves at a small angle to the node (anti-node) planes its motion represents namely the oscillations between two neighboring planes. The phenomenon is mostly known as channeling in a lattice of the standing waves. Obviously, this effect can be used to handle beams in accelerator physics, more general, for the beam shaping with the specific properties. The advantage of the plane wave channeling is the absence of inelastic scattering that takes place in a crystal. The possibility to re-distribute the current density of particles in the beam by means of the laser standing wave is demonstrated.
