11 CSFI Rimini - Maggio 29, 2008 So we would like to operate a SASE FEL with ultra high beam currents, I p > 10 kA, yet in the usual regime Emittance dominated beam through undulator

12 CSFI Rimini - Maggio 29, 2008 We started exploring two self-injection schemes: a) self-trapping in the bubble regime and b) controlled self injection with density downramp. Bubble injection [ A. Pukhov, J. M.-ter-Vehn, Appl. Phys. B 74, 355 (2002)] has been widely investigated, both experimentally and numerically and it has been proved to be able to produce high energetic (GeV- scale), high charge and quasi monochromatic (few-percent) e-beams. Self injection with density downramp Main idea+1D sim. [S. Bulanov et al., PRE 58, 5 R5257], First 2D sim+optimization for monocromaticity and low emittance [P. Tomassini et al. PRST-AB (2003)], First experimental paper of LWFA with injection by density decrease [T. Hosokai et al., PRE 67, (2003)]. It has been (numerically) proved to be able to produce very low emittance and quasi monochromatic e-beams Beam Generation

13 CSFI Rimini - Maggio 29, D PIC results with the VORPAL code Macro-particles move in a moving-window simulation box of 50x60  m 2 with a spatial resolution of 0.05  and  0.15  and 20particle/cell The plasma density is large ( cm -3 ) in order to “freeze” the space- charge effects and slippage in the early stage of acceleration. The density transition was (L~5-10  m ~ p ). The amplitude of the transition is low (20%-40%), thus producing a SHORT e-beam The laser pulse intensity (I= W/cm 2 ) 2J in 25fs focused on a waist of 18  m) was tuned in order to produce a wakefield far from wavebreaking in the flat regions. The pulse waist was chosen in order to assure that longitudinal effects do dominate over transverse (avoid transverse wavebreaking that will increase the emittance of the bunch) A Multi-plateau (three contiguous accelerating regions with increasing densities along the pulse path) is adopted to fix punch slippage along the bucket

24 CSFI Rimini - Maggio 29, 2008 In a conventional FEL the electron beam is generated in the space charge dominated regime (  TR ) and is brought, by acceleration and focusing, into the emittance dominated regime (  TR ), where the FEL interaction occurs In the AOFEL the electron beam is generated in the emittance dominated regime (  TR ) and is left diffracting within the plasma (and in vacuum) into the space charge dominated regime (  TR ), where the FEL interaction occurs

Benedetti’s talk Computational challenge: turn a plasma-code into an accelerator-code, from plasma vomit to partice beams It’s worth to envision and study the future generation of high brightness beam injectors
