Abstract

We report on an experimental demonstration of laser wake field electron acceleration using few-milijoule laser pulses tightly focused on a 100 μm scale gas target. Using a comparatively low energy pulse has the benefit of a more compact system with a high repetition rate (typically kHz), which can prove useful for both practical applications and better statistical studies of laser plasma interactions. A proof-of-principle experiment was conducted to demonstrate the applicability of such electron sources from laser plasma wake field accelerator for ultrafast electron diffraction.
