1 A Proposal for a 1 GeV Plasma-Wakefield Acceleration Experiment at SLAC


A plasma-based wakefield acceleration (PWFA) experiment is proposed that will accelerate parts of an SLC bunch by up to 1 GeV/m over a length of 1 m. A single SLC bunch is used to both induce wakefields in the one meter long plasma and to witness the resulting beam acceleration. The proposed experiment will explore and further develop the techniques that… (More)
