Title LA3NET - An international network on laser applications at accelerators
Abstract Lasers have become increasingly important for the successful operation and continuous optimization of particle accelerators: Laser-based particle sources are well suited for delivering the highest quality ion and electron beams, laser acceleration has demonstrated unprecedented accelerating gradients and might be an alternative for conventional particle accelerators in the future, and without laser-based beam diagnostics it would not be possible to unravel the characteristics of many complex particle beams. The LA³NET project brings together research centres, universities, and industry partners to jointly train 17 early stage researchers. In addition, the consortium will also organize a number of international training events, such as schools, topical workshops and conferences. This contribution gives examples from the network's broad research program and summarizes planned training events.
