Development of laser wakefield accelerators

Jan-Niclas Gruse
This thesis investigates theoretically and experimentally the wakefield generation, elec- tron acceleration and x-ray emission in laser driven plasma wakefield acceleration. In preparation for a multi-stage laser accelerator with multiple laser, one of the Astra-Gemini laser pulses at 100 TW was used to reflect off a plasma mirror, a 125 μm Kapton foil. Its reflectivity of up to 70% and beam quality was measured. The beam was then self-guide it through a gas cell in...
