Title EuPRAXIA, a step toward a plasma-wakefield based accelerator with high beam quality
Abstract The EuPRAXIA project aims at designing the world's first accelerator based on advanced plasma-wakefield tech-niques to deliver 5 GeV electron beams that simultane-ously have high charge, low emittance and low energy spread, which are required for applications by future user communities. Meeting this challenging objective will only be possible through dedicated effort. Many injection/accel-eration schemes and techniques have been explored by means of thorough simulations in more than ten European research institutes. This enables selection of the most ap-propriate methods for solving each particular problem. The specific challenge of generating, extracting and transport-ing high charge beams, while maintaining the high quality needed for user applications, are being tackled using inno-vative approaches. This article highlights preliminary re-sults obtained by the EuPRAXIA collaboration, which also exhibit the required laser and plasma parameters.
