Characterization of the beam loading effects in a laser plasma accelerator

Abstract : In this study, electrons were injected into a laser plasma accelerator using colliding laser pulses. By varying the parameters of the injection laser pulse, the amount of charge accelerated in the plasma wave could be controlled. This external control of the injected load was used to investigate beam loading of the accelerating structure and especially its influence on the electron beam energy and energy spread. Information on the accelerating structure and bunch duration was then derived from these experimental observations.
