Summary Report Of Working Group 8: Laser Technology For Laser-Plasma Accelerators
Laser Technology has long been the limiting and the enabling step for laser plasma accelerators. The work presented here addressed the current and near future laser technology relevant to particle acceleration as well as ...
Preparation For Laser Wakefield Experiments Driven By The Texas Petawatt Laser System
Laboratories around the world are planning petawatt laser driven experiments. The Texas petawatt laser offers the ability to demonstrate laser wake field acceleration (LWFA) in a unique regime with pulse duration (similar ...
The Texas Petawatt Laser And Current Experiments
The Texas Petawatt Laser is operational with experimental campaigns executed in both F/40 and F3 target chambers. Recent improvements have resulted in intensities of >2x10(21) W/cm(2) on target. Experimental highlights ...
Petawatt-Laser-Driven Wakefield Acceleration Of Electrons To 2 Gev In 10(17)Cm(-3) Plasma
Electron self-injection into a laser-plasma accelerator (LPA) driven by the Texas Petawatt (TPW) laser is reported at plasma densities 1.7 - 6.2 x 10(17) cm(-3). Energy and charge of the electron beam, ranging from 0.5 GeV ...
