GeV electron beams from a centimeter-scale laser-driven plasma accelerator

Abstract:
Results are presented on the generation of quasimonoenergetic electron beams with energy up to 1GeV using a 40TW laser and a 3.3 cm-long hydrogen-filled capillary discharge waveguide [1, 2]. Electron beams were not observed without a plasma channel, indicating that self-focusing alone could not be relied upon for effective guiding of the laser pulse. Results are presented of the electron beam spectra, and the dependence of the reliability of producing electron beams as a function of laser and plasma parameters. ©2007 IEEE.
