Emittance exchange beamlines employ transverse masks to create drive and witness beams of variable longitudinal profile and bunch spacing. Recently, this approach has been used to create advanced driver profiles and demonstrate record-breaking plasma wakefield transformer ratios [Roussel, R., et al., Phys. Rev. Lett. 124, 044802 (2020)], a crucial advancement for efficient witness acceleration. However, since the transverse masks are individually laser cut and installed into the UHV beamline…

Arbitrary Longitudinal Pulse Shaping with a Multi-Leaf Collimator and Emittance Exchange

Drive and witness beams with variable current profiles and bunch spacing can be generated using an emittance exchange beamline (EEX) in conjunction with transverse masks. Recently, this approach was
