Dynamics of plasma wave drivers

Journal Article

The working group on Dynamics of Plasma wave Drivers considered the evolution of lasers and particle beams used to drive plasma wakes for plasma accelerators. In addition, the group developed a comparison table of several laser and particle driven plasma accelerator designs. The table shows that differences between the schemes are associated largely with the plasma densities at which they typically operate. Designs with high plasma densities tend to have higher gradients and fewer stages but require repetition rates to achieve a given luminosity than designs at lower densities.
