Studies of ion acceleration in a one meter laser controlled collective accelerator
MetadataShow full item record
The basic concept behind the Laser Controlled Beamfront Experiment has been described in detail in previous reports(1,2) In the experiment, control over the propagation of a virtual cathode at the front of an intense relativistic electron beam is achieved by a time-sequenced plasma channel produced by laser-target interactions (see Fig. 1). Ions are trapped and accelerated by the very strong electric fields (50-400 MV/m) at the virtual cathode.
