In this paper we show that injection occurs due to the localised charge density build-up in the sheath crossing region at the rear of the bubble, which has the effect of increasing the accelerating potential to above a critical value. Injected electron bunch duration is determined by the dwell time above this critical value, which explains why single or multiple ultra-short electron bunches are formed in the first bubble. We have performed a series of 3-D particle-in-cell simulations (OSIRIS) to compared our model as well as experimental measurements on the ALPHA-X beam line.
