Resonant excitation of very high gradient plasma wakefield accelerators by optical-period bunch trains

Using a periodic electron beam bunch train to resonantly excite plasma wakefields in the quasi-nonlinear (QNL) regime has distinct advantages over employing a single, higher charge bunch. Resonant

Accelerated-Cherenkov radiation and signatures of radiation reaction

In this manuscript we examine an accelerated charged particle moving through an optical medium, and explore the emission of accelerated-Cherenkov radiation. The particle’s reaction to acceleration

Study of space radiation effects with laser-plasma-accelerators

The potential of laser-plasma-accelerators for space radiation testing of electronics is explored. Both fields, laser-plasma-acceleration on the one hand and space radiation testing on the other are

Potentials of a moving test charge during the solar wind interaction with dusty magnetosphere of Jupiter

The electrostatic Debye screening and wakefield potentials caused by a test charge are investigated in a positively charged dusty plasma. A modified dielectric constant of the dust-acoustic waves to

Reconstruction of electron radiation spectra and beam parameters from photon spectrometer data in accelerator experiments using machine learning

Recovering key aspects of an incoming photon stream during projected FACET-II experiments, such as their energy distributions and the original electron beam’s parameters, remains an unsolved



Measurements and simulations of ultralow emittance and ultrashort electron beams in the linac coherent light source.

Very low-emittance measurements made at low bunch charge, and a few femtosecond bunch length produced by the LCLS bunch compressors, show the possibilities of generating hundreds of GW at 1.5 A x-ray wavelength and nearly a single longitudinally coherent spike at 2-fs duration.

Adjustable, short focal length permanent-magnet quadrupole based electron beam final focus system

Next generation advanced-accelerators such as the plasma wake-field accelerator, and beamradiation interaction scenarios such as inverse-Compton scattering (ICS), depend on the achieving of

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.

Energy Loss of a High Charge Bunched Electron Beam in Plasma:. Analysis

There has been much recent experimental and theoretical interest in the blowout regime of plasma wakefield acceleration, which features ultrahigh accelerating fields, linear transverse focusing

Observation of coherent terahertz edge radiation from compressed electron beams

Coherent radiation emitted from a compressed electron bunch as it traverses the sharp edge regions of a magnetic chicane has been investigated at the Brookhaven National Laboratory Accelerator Test

Particle-in-cell simulations of tunneling ionization effects in plasma-based accelerators

Plasma-based accelerators can sustain accelerating gradients on the order of 100 GV/m. If the plasma is not fully ionized, fields of this magnitude will ionize neutral atoms via electron tunneling,

Multi-GeV energy gain in a plasma-wakefield accelerator.

A plasma-wakefield accelerator has accelerated particles by over 2.7 GeV in a 10 cm long plasma module, driving a large amplitude plasma wake that in turn accelerates particles in the back of the bunch by more than 2.8 GeV.

Effects of ion motion in intense beam-driven plasma wakefield accelerators.

The motion of plasma ions under the beam fields is analyzed, and it is found that for a proposed PWFA collider scenario that the ions completely collapse inside of the beam.

Acceleration and focusing of electrons in two-dimensional nonlinear plasma wake fields.

If the beam is dense enough to eject nearly all of the plasma electrons from the beam channel, then the short-range wake fields are of excellent quality for acceleration and focusing of electron beams.
