Recently such reduction has been observed in particle-driven plasma-wakefield accelerators. The correlated energy spread is reduced by using the interaction of the electron bunch with its wakefields generated in the plasma. This contribution reviews the working principle of such a dechirper and the experimental observations in the different test facilities. A view on future directions and various ideas and concepts is presented. PB - JACoW Publishing CP - Geneva, Switzerland ER -
