Title Design of LhARA - Laser Hybrid Accelerator for Radiobiological Applications
Abstract Recent developments of using lasers interacting with tar-gets for the creation of ion beams offer a possibility to pro-vide beams for radiobiology research. This research aims to precisely study the radiobiological effectiveness of charged particles on various cultures of cells, which is es-sential to inform next generation hadron therapy treatment plans. The Laser hybrid Accelerator for Radiobiological Applications (LhARA) has been proposed to use a laser driven beam, which will be captured and focused using Ga-bor Lenses. The beam will be then energy and momentum selected to create a beam for in-vitro cells studies or sent to a post-accelerator ring to create beam for in-vivo studies. The optical design of LhARA is presented in this paper.
