Starting Up the AWAKE Experiment at CERN
AWAKE, the Advanced Proton Driven Plasma Wakefield Acceleration Experiment at CERN was approved in 2013. The facility was commissioned in 2016 to perform first experiments to demonstrate the
Proton-driven plasma wakefield acceleration in AWAKE
TLDR
The final goal of AWAKE Run 1 (2013–2018) was to demonstrate that 10–20 MeV electrons can be accelerated to GeV energies in a plasma wakefield driven by a highly relativistic self-modulated proton bunch.
The AWAKE Run 2 programme and beyond
Plasma wakefield acceleration is a promising technology to reduce the size of particle accelerators. Use of high energy protons to drive wakefields in plasma has been demonstrated during Run 1 of the
AWAKE Proton Beam Commissioning
AWAKE is the first proton driven plasma wakefield acceleration experiment worldwide. The facility is located in the former CNGS area at CERN and includes a proton, laser and electron beam line
Proton-Beam-Driven Plasma Acceleration
We describe the main ideas, promises and challenges related to proton-driven plasma wakefield acceleration. Existing high-energy proton beams have the potential to accelerate electron beams to the

The Advanced Proton Driven Plasma Wakefield Acceleration Experiment (AWAKE) is a project at CERN aiming to accelerate an electron bunch in a plasma wakefield driven by a proton bunch. The plasma is
Integration of a Terawatt Laser at the CERN SPS Beam for the AWAKE Experiment on Proton-Driven Plasma Wake Acceleration
In the AWAKE experiment a high-power laser pulse ionizes rubidium atoms thus creating a plasma for protondriven wakefield acceleration of electrons and seeding the self-modulation instability within
Design of the Proton and Electron Transfer Lines for AWAKE Run 2c
The AWAKE Run 1 experiment achieved electron acceleration to 2 GeV using plasma wakefield acceleration driven by 400 GeV, self-modulated proton bunches from the CERN SPS. The Run 2c phase of the
Seeded Self-Modulation of Transversely Asymmetric Long Proton Beams in Plasma
The AWAKE experiment at CERN recently demonstrated the world's first acceleration of electrons in a proton-driven plasma wakefield accelerator. Such accelerators show great promise for a new
