Simulation Study of Laser Plasma Accelerator Via Vorpal

In this paper, we use PIC code Vorpal to do the extensive simulation about the laser plasma accelerator in the linear, quasilinear and nonlinear regime respectively. We design the ~100 MeV or so



Towards a table-top free-electron laser

Synchrotron radiation generated using an electron beam from a laser-driven accelerator opens the possibility of building an X-ray free-electron laser hundreds of times smaller than conventional

Reducing the sensitivity of a free‐electron laser to electron energy

A technique is described which allows a free‐electron laser to utilize an electron beam with a wide energy spread. A laser using this technique can be powered by a greater variety of electron sources

Physics of laser-driven plasma-based electron accelerators

Laser-driven plasma-based accelerators, which are capable of supporting fields in excess of 100 GV/m, are reviewed. This includes the laser wakefield accelerator, the plasma beat wave accelerator,

Operating plasma density issues on large-scale laser-plasma accelerators toward high-energy frontier

Consideration of laser-driven plasma-based electron/positron accelerators with a 2 TeV center-of-mass energy is presented, employing a multistaging scheme consisting of successive multi-GeV laser

Ultrahigh brightness electron beams by plasma-based injectors for driving all-optical free-electron lasers

We studied the generation of low emittance high current monoenergetic beams from plasma waves driven by ultrashort laser pulses, in view of achieving beam brightness of interest for free-electron

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

LWFA as a Preinjector for XFEL Driver Linac

In this paper, we propose to use the LWFA as the preinjector for XFEL driver linac. We can use LWFA to produce the femtosecond electron beam. The peak current of the produced beam can reach tens of
