Title R&D into Laser Applications for Accelerators
Abstract Lasers can be used for the generation of high brightness electron and exotic ion beams, the acceleration of particles with the highest accelerating gradients, as well as for the characterization of many complex particle beams by means of laser-based beam Diagnostics methods. In addition, (free electron) lasers can be used for achieving the highest time resolution and strongest fields for experiments in atomic physics, chemistry and biology, i.e. for studies into the dynamics of some of the most fundamental processes in nature. Without constant progress in laser technology and close collaboration between laser experts and accelerator scientists, many of today's most advanced experiments would simply be impossible. The LA3NET consortium combines developments into laser technology and sensors with their application at advanced accelerator facilities, for the generation, improvement and optimization of a wide range of particle beams. This contribution presents the consortium's broad, yet closely interconnected experimental program.
