The x-ray emission in laser-plasma accelerators can be a powerful tool to understand the physics of relativistic laser-plasma interaction. It is shown here that the mapping of betatron x-ray radiation can be obtained from the x-ray beam profile when an aperture mask is positioned just beyond the end of the emission region. The influence of the plasma(More)
Experiments on the multiterawatt (MTW) laser at the Laboratory for Laser Energetics will study the effect of the focal-spot shape on the forward acceleration and collimation of electrons. A compact electron spectrometer has been developed to record the energy spectra of electrons ejected in the interaction of the laser at multiple angular locations(More)
We present time-resolved reflectivity and transmissivity of hot, overdense plasma by employing a multicolor probe beam, consisting of harmonics at wavelengths of 800 nm, 400 nm and 266 nm. The hot-dense plasma, formed by exciting a fused silica target with a 30 fs, 2 × 10(17) W cm(-2) intensity pulse, shows a sub-picosecond transition in reflectivity(More)
The absorption of ultraintense, femtosecond laser pulses by a solid unleashes relativistic electrons, thereby creating a regime of relativistic optics. This has enabled exciting applications of relativistic particle beams and coherent X-ray radiation, and fundamental leaps in high energy density science and laboratory astrophysics. Obviously, central to(More)
