Horizon 2020 EuPRAXIA design study

The Horizon 2020 Project EuPRAXIA (“European Plasma Research Accelerator with eXcellence In Applications”) is preparing a conceptual design report of a highly compact and cost-effective European

Accelerator Physics Challenges towards a Plasma Accelerator with Usable Beam Quality

Enormous progress in compact plasma accelerators has been demonstrated over the recent years in various experiments. These experiments rely on high power pulsed lasers or short electron bunches to

A laser–plasma accelerator producing monoenergetic electron beams

It is demonstrated that this randomization of electrons in phase space can be suppressed and that the quality of the electron beams can be dramatically enhanced.

Experimentally minimized beam emittance from an L-band photoinjector

High brightness electron sources for linac based free-electron lasers (FELs) are being developed at the Photo Injector Test facility at DESY, Zeuthen site (PITZ). Production of electron bunches with

Energy doubling of 42 GeV electrons in a metre-scale plasma wakefield accelerator

An energy gain of more than 42 GeV is achieved in a plasma wakefield accelerator of 85 cm length, driven by a 42‬GeV electron beam at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC), in excellent agreement with the predictions of three-dimensional particle-in-cell simulations.

High-quality electron beams from a laser wakefield accelerator using plasma-channel guiding

A laser accelerator that produces electron beams with an energy spread of a few per cent, low emittance and increased energy (more than 109 electrons above 80 MeV) and opens the way for compact and tunable high-brightness sources of electrons and radiation.

GeV electron beams from a centimetre-scale accelerator

Gigaelectron volt (GeV) electron accelerators are essential to synchrotron radiation facilities and free-electron lasers, and as modules for high-energy particle physics. Radiofrequency-based

High-efficiency acceleration of an electron beam in a plasma wakefield accelerator

This acceleration of a distinct bunch of electrons containing a substantial charge and having a small energy spread with both a high accelerating gradient and a high energy-transfer efficiency represents a milestone in the development of plasma wakefield acceleration into a compact and affordable accelerator technology.

Beam loading in a laser-plasma accelerator using a near-hollow plasma channel

Beam loading in laser-plasma accelerators using a near-hollow plasma channel is examined in the linear wake regime. It is shown that, by properly shaping and phasing the witness particle beam,
