Progress towards a demonstration of multi-pulse laser wakefield acceleration and implementation of a single-shot wakefield diagnostic

Abstract:

An ongoing experiment is described to demonstrate the principle of multi-pulse laser wakefield acceleration, in which a plasma wakefield is resonantly excited by a train of laser pulses, spaced by the plasma wavelength. Particle-in-cell simulations of the initial single-pulse experimental setup are presented, in order to calculate the expected signal. Preliminary results are presented and future plans, based on work done so far, are discussed.

Part of this work involves the implemen...
