Physics of Plasmas : Simulation of quasimonoenergetic electron beams produced by colliding pulse wakefield acceleration

By: X. Davoine, E. Lefebvre, J. Faure, C. Rechatin, A. Lifschitz et al

...ser pulses can inject electrons into a wakefield accelerator, and has been found to produce stable and tunable quasimonoenergetic electron beams [ J. Faure et al., Nature 444, 737 (2006) ]. This colliding pulse scheme is studied here with 3D particle-in-cell simulations. The results are successfully compared with experimental data, showing the accuracy of the simulations. ...
