For the beam driver of inertial confinement fusion, the technology to compress a charged particle beam in longitudinal direction is crucially important. However, the quality of the beam is expected to be deteriorated when the beam is rapidly compressed in longitudinal direction. In order to investigate the beam dynamics during bunch compression, we made a compact beam compression system and carried out beam compression experiments. In this paper, we show the background of our study and recent progress of the beam compression experiments.
