Laser-Plasma Light Sources: Research and Developments for increased Control, Stability, Gain and Brightness

Abstract : Laser-plasma technology has the potential to provide compact sources of bright femtosecond X-ray, which may soon serve as an alternative to their conventional counterparts. Proof-of- principle experiments have impressively demonstrated the sources’ prospects, yet the poor stability and tunability drastically limit their scope of applicability. Conventional systems have achieved their remarkable control over the source by progressive improvement of the discrete stages of injection, acceleration, beam transport and radiation generation. In this work we have adapted this approach for laser-plasma sources and made advances on all individual parts of the source.
