Quantitative optical probing of plasma accelerators

Abstract:

Four novel methods to diagnose plasma wakefield accelerators using optical probes are presented in this thesis. The first method involves sending an optical probe pulse to cross the wakefield at an oblique angle of incidence. The wakefield then imprints a phase modulation onto the probe which is read using a spectral interferometry technique. At first, the method was developed analytically and verified against multi-dimensional Particle-in-Cell (PIC) simulations. These allowed the relation...
