LA3NET - Laser Applications at Particle Accelerators

Carsten P. Welsch, Alexandra Alexandrova, Magda Klimontowska

Abstract

Particle accelerators are propellers for future science enabling fundamental research and new technological developments. Accelerators have numerous practical applications across many fields including medicine, electronics, environment and energy. New methods of ion beam generation will expand the boundaries of research and open up new practical applications for the everyday world. As the limits of performance are reached new methods for particle acceleration and beam optimization are needed. Lasers will play a key role in the development of accelerators by improving the generation of high brightness electron and exotic ion beams and through increasing the acceleration gradient. Lasers will also make an increasingly important contribution to the characterization of many complex particle beams by means of laser-based beam diagnostics methods. The LA³NET network has been built around 19 early stage researchers working on dedicated projects to research and develop a complete spectrum of laserbased applications for accelerators. The network consisted of an international consortium of almost 40 partner organizations including universities, research centers and private companies working in this field. This has provided a crosssector interdisciplinary environment for beyond state-of-the-art research and researcher training while developing links and new collaborations. This article summarizes the research and training highlights across the projects work packages.
