Title Beam dynamics studies into grating-based dielectric laser-driven accelerators
Abstract Dielectric laser-driven accelerators (DLAs) based on gratings confine an electromagnetic field induced by a drive laser into a narrow vacuum channel where electrons travel and are accelerated. This can provide an alternative acceleration technology compared to conventional rf cavity accelerators. Due to the achievable high acceleration gradient of up to several GV/m this could pave the way for future ultra-short and low cost╬╝accelerators. This contribution presents detailed beam dynamics simulations for multi-period double grating structures. Using the computer code VSim and realistic beam distributions, the achievable acceleration gradient and final beam quality in terms of emittance and energy spread are discussed. The results are then used for an overall optimization of the accelerating structure.
