2. Principle of Plasma Based High Energy Particle Accelerators
Mechanism of Plasma Based Accelerator 3. 1992 Beat wave method was proved by Kitagawa et al. (’93 RAL & UCLA) 2. 1988 Plasma Wake Field method was proved by Rosenzweig et al. (ANL), (’90 KEK & Utsunomiya) 1. 1983 VpxB Acceleration mechanism was found by Nishida et al.
4. 1993 Laser wakefield was proved by Nakajima, Ogata, Nishida, et al.. (1) Laser Wakefield (Dorchies et al. 1999) 5. Capillary method by B. Cross et al.,1999
3. Brief History Depending on Experimental Results and Future Tasks
Brief history (1) 1.Concept on plasma-laser based high energy particle accelerator was proposed by Tajima & Dawson in 1979. 2.The key idea was to excite large amplitude electron plasma waves by using short pulse laser (LWA) in high density plasma. 3.However, there was no such a laser in that era, and beat wave could excite the plasma waves. 4.In 1983 Nishida et al. succeeded to find new acceleration mechanism, later called VpxB acceleration. This was the first and new mechanism observed of high energy acceleration phenomena.
Brief history (2) 5. In 1986, P.Chen et al proposed to use electron bunch to excite the plasma wave (PWA) and this idea was confirmed by Rosenzweig et al.(1988).In 1990, Nakanishi, Ogata, Nishida et al. observed 2-order of magnitude larger energy. 6. In 1992, Kitagawa et al. succeeded in electron acceleration by using BWA (Beat wave Wake field Accel.) method. 7. In 1995, Nakajima et al. succeeded to accelerate electrons up to 100 MeV by using LWA (Laser Wake field Accel.) method. 8. In 1988, Mine, Mourou et al. invented CPA (Chirped Pulse Amplification) method for short pulse laser amplification and was put in practical use around 1995.

4. Summary and Future Laser Requirements Accelerator concepts are reviewed. Laser particle acceleration has been demonstrated. ・ Energy gains at 1 MeV to 200 MeV ・ E-field of 1 GeV/m to 1000 GeV/m ・ GeV energy is expected, although it is realized in PWA Quasi-monoenergetic electron accelerations have been achieved in wide parameter range of self-injection wakefield accelerator. Good pointing stability of electron bunch has been accomplished by applying axial magnetic field. For further higher energy accelerators, the requirements are extreme: ・ Luminosity : 1000 bunches/s with 1 nC/bunch ・ For 1 GeV source 1 PW to 30 PW with kHz range ・ At higher energy, say, 1 TeV source, one need 1 MJ/s or more!! By using PWA, it can reach 1 TeV particles at present, but you need large linear accelerator for accelerating the driver electron bunches.
