WP18: Very High Gradient Acceleration Techniques (VHGAT)

Objectives

  • Coordinate and monitor WP18 activities
  • Produce design concept for a beam transport line for use in a multi-stage LWFA experiment at CILEX
  • Study acceleration in plasma waves driven by lasers with orbital angular momentum and corresponding radiation signatures
  • Design, manufacture and test dielectric structure for laser driver
  • Optimise ionization injection, plasma shaping and laser profile shaping.
