Summary Report Of Working Group 8: Laser Technology For Laser-Plasma Accelerators
MetadataShow full item record
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 laser technology challenges for future accelerator facilities. Many laser facilities are operating or will be operating shortly at high intensity, high peak power, and with good beam parameters.

Fast-electron-relaxation measurement for laser-solid interaction at relativistic laser intensities Chen, H.; Shepherd, R.; Chung, H. K.; Kemp, A.; Hansen, S. B.; Wilks, S. C.; Ping, Y.; Widmann, K.; Fournier, K. B.; Dyer, G.; Faenov, A.; Pikuz, T.; Beiersdorfer, P. (2007-11)We present measurements of the fast-electron-relaxation time in short-pulse (0.5 ps) laser-solid interactions for laser intensities of 10(17), 10(18), and 10(19) W/cm(2), using a picosecond time-resolved x-ray spectrometer ...
Downer, M. C.; Chiu, C.; Fomyts'kyi, M.; Gaul, E. W.; Grigsby, F.; Matlis, N. H.; Shim, B.; Smith, P. J.; Zgadzaj, R. (2002-12)We have demonstrated distortion-free guiding of I TW pulses at near relativistic intensity (0.2 x 10(18) W/cm(2)) over 60 Rayleigh lengths at 20 Hz repetition rate in a preformed helium plasma channel. As steps toward ...
Sanders, J. C.; Zgadzaj, R.; Downer, M. C. (2012-06)We report a two-color terawatt laser system for use in controlling laser-plasma instabilities. The system includes a commercial 45 TW Ti:Sapphire laser system at 800 nm, temporally synchronized with a 1 TW CPA Raman-Ti:Sapphire ...
