Chan Joshi (UCLA), will deliver a lecture in the John Adams Institute for
Accelerator Science series at 14.30 on Thursday 29 October 2009 in the
Fisher room, Denys Wilkinson Building, Keble Road, Oxford.
Title: Injection and Acceleration of Electrons in the Self-Guided LWFA
I will describe recent work on wake‐assisted self guiding of ultra‐short
laser pulses over tens of Rayleigh lengths in a plasma and on the
measurement of the threshold power for self trapping in this regime.
To get trapping and acceleration at lower laser powers, ionization induced
injection into the wakes is explored. Some initial results at 100TW in cm
scale plasmas will be presented.
This lecture can be broadcast on request
