  author={Claudio Emma and Jeroen van Tilborg and F. Albert and Luca Labate and Joel England and Spencer Gessner and Frederico Fiuza and Lieselotte Obst-Huebl and Alexander Zholents and A. Murokh and James Benjamin Rosenzweig},
While the long-term vision of the advanced accelerator community is aimed at addressing the challenges of future collider technology, it is critical that the community takes advantage of the opportunity to make large societal impact through its near-term applications. In turn, enabling robust applications strengthens the quality, control, and reliability of the underlying accelerator infrastructure. The white paper contributions that are solicited here will summarize the near-term applications…

Snowmass Whitepaper AF6: Plasma-Based Particle Sources

High-brightness beams generated by particle sources based on advanced accelerator concepts have the potential to become an essential part of future accelerator technology. High-gradient accelerators

Whitepaper submitted to Snowmass21: Advanced accelerator linear collider demonstration facility at intermediate energy

It is widely accepted that the next lepton collider beyond a Higgs factory would require center-of-mass energy of the order of up to 15 TeV. Since, given reasonable space and cost restrictions,

It is shown that a particle passing along the axis of a helical magnet (in which the field is perpendicular to the axis and rotating as a function of position along the magnet) can be continuously

Applications of laser wakefield accelerator-based light sources

Laser-wakefield accelerators (LWFAs) were proposed more than three decades ago, and while they promise to deliver compact, high energy particle accelerators, they will also provide the scientific

High-energy inverse free-electron-laser accelerator.

We study the inverse free-electron-laser (IFEL) accelerator and show that it can accelerate electrons to the few hundred GeV region with average acceleration rates of the order of 200 MeV/m. Several

Femtosecond x rays from laser-plasma accelerators

Relativistic interaction of short-pulse lasers with underdense plasmas has recently led to the emergence of a novel generation of femtosecond x-ray sources. Based on radiation from electrons

A new platform for ultra-high dose rate radiobiological research using the BELLA PW laser proton beamline

Dose-dependent cell survival measurements of human normal and tumor cells exposed to LD protons showed significantly higher cell survival of normal-cells compared to tumor-cells for total doses of 7 Gy and higher, which was not observed to the same extent for X-ray reference irradiations at clinical dose rates.

Free electron lasers driven by plasma accelerators: status and near-term prospects

Abstract Owing to their ultra-high accelerating gradients, combined with injection inside micrometer-scale accelerating wakefield buckets, plasma-based accelerators hold great potential to drive a

Radiobiology of the flash effect.

The current theories that may explain the FLASH effect are summarized and important research questions are highlighted which are key to a better mechanistic understanding and, thus, the future implementation of FLASH-RT in the clinic.
