Single shot time resolved techniques have been developed and applied to the measurement of the phase velocity, frequency, and coherence of space charge waves on an IREB. We report results for the time evolution of the wave phase velocity as a function of the beam and wave parameters. The application of slow space charge waves to collective ion acceleration will be summarized and a description presented of an experiment to demonstrate the viability of the use of space charge waves for ion acceleration.
