Generation of dark-current-free quasi-monoenergetic 1.25 GeV electrons by laser wakefield acceleration

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


We report electron acceleration to 1.25 GeV by petawatt-laser-driven wakefield acceleration at plasma density 5×1017 cm-3. Electron beams are dark-current-free, quasi-monoenergetic, highly collimated (<1mrad divergence), contain tens of pC and have excellent pointing stability.
