Subrelativistic electron source for Dielectric Laser Acceleration, elements of design

  title={Subrelativistic electron source for Dielectric Laser Acceleration, elements of design},
  author={J. L. Babigeon},
We describe and discuss solutions for an innovating sub-relativistic electron source, based on pulsed DC gun, including linear (1D) Field Emitter Array (FEA) associated immediately with Laser Dielectric Accelerator (DLA) stage. That setup is designed to avoid any standard accelerator component (electrostatic or magnetic macroscopic dipole ...) Parts of the diagnostics, including spectrometer and all diagnostics, are planned to rely on nano-structures. Then the entire setup -pulsed source, laser… 


Experimental results from the micro-accelerator platform, a resonant slab-symmetric dielectric laser accelerator
We describe experimental measurements of energy modulation obtained using the Micro Accelerator Platform (MAP), a slab-symmetric dielectric laser accelerator based on a resonant structure, at the
Subnanosecond pulsed-DC ultra-high gardient photogun for bright relativistic electron bunches
This work is devoted to a novel method for the production of bright, relativistic electron bunches for Laser Wakefield Acceleration. The production of high brightness, ultrarelativistic electron
Nanoseconds field emitted current pulses from ZrC needles and field emitter arrays
The properties of the electron source define the ultimate limit of the beam quality in linear accelerators such as free electron lasers (FELs). The goal is to develop an electron gun delivering beam
Design of a subnanometer resolution beam position monitor for dielectric laser accelerators.
A new concept for a beam position monitor with the unique ability to map particle beam position to a measurable wavelength is presented, and through finite-element frequency-domain simulations, a resolution of 0.7 nm is shown.
Schottky-enabled photoemission in a rf accelerator photoinjector: possible generation of ultralow transverse thermal-emittance electron beam.
A clear signature of the Schottky effect is presented in a rf photoinjector using photons with energy lower than the Mg cathode work function, which is a viable method to generate an electron beam with very low thermal emittance and thus, a high brightness beam.
Method for computationally efficient design of dielectric laser accelerator structures.
Using the adjoint variable method, a highly efficient technique used to compute the sensitivity of an objective with respect to a large number of parameters, numerical optimizations aimed at maximizing acceleration gradients generate fabricable structures of greatly improved performance in comparison to previously examined geometries.
Demonstration of acceleration of relativistic electrons at a dielectric microstructure using femtosecond laser pulses.
This Letter presents the first demonstration of acceleration of relativistic electrons at a dielectric microstructure driven by femtosecond duration laser pulses, and an electron accelerating gradient of 690±100  MV m-1 was measured-a record for dielectrics laser accelerators.
For destructive beam intensity measurements, electrostatic Faraday cups will be incorporated into the Ultra-low energy Storage Ring (USR) and its transfer lines at the Facility for Low-energy
Role of rf electric and magnetic fields in heating of micro-protrusions in accelerating structures
It is known that high-gradient operation in metallic accelerating structures causes significant deterioration of structure surfaces that, in turn, greatly increases the probability of microwave
Some problems on rf breakdown in room temperature accelerator structure, a possible criterion
The discussion is confined to high gradient, room-temperature accelerators which have clean well-finished cavity surfaces and good vacuum conditions. Breakdown-initiating mechanisms due to ''cold''
