Electron acceleration experiments with new targets


Laser-Plasma Accelerators (LPA) exploit electric fields exceeding 100 GV/m to produce ultrashort electron bunches. These unique features open up new prospects for ultrafast physics and the development of compact accelerators. Yet, LPAs suffer from inferior beam quality and stability. One of the reasons for these weaknesses is poor control of the target properties. Task 6.3 aims at developing and testing targets of superior quality for extending the beam energy and improving its reliability. Here we report on experiments performed with the new targets, showing excellent performance.
