Title Improving Ion and Electron Beam Characteristics within LA³NET
Abstract Lasers are widely used at accelerator and light source facilities for beam generation, acceleration and optimization. Research within LA³NET focuses on laser-based particle sources (photo injectors and laser ion sources), laser acceleration, and laser-based beam diagnostics. This project was recently selected as a ‘success story’ by the European Commission for its research achievements. This paper presents selected numerical and experimental results. From HZDR results of electron transport simulations in their new SRF gun II cavity, super-conductive solenoid and downstream accelerators are shown. The results from optimization studies into asymmetric grating structures obtained at the University of Liverpool are also presented, along with initial results from studies into novel diagnostics for high intensity proton beams at CERN and low energy electron beams at KIT. Finally, the events organized by the consortium to date and future plans are summarized.
