Effect of external static magnetic field on the emittance and total charge of electron beams generated by laser-Wakefield acceleration.

Abstract

Significant enhancement of emittance and an increase of the total charge of femtosecond electron beams produced by a 12 TW, 40 fs laser pulse, tightly focused in a He gas jet, are observed after applying a static magnetic field, B> or =0.2 T, directed along the axis of laser pulse propagation. The effect appears when plasma produced by a laser prepulse… (More)
