Temporally resolved diagnostics of laser produced plasma for electron acceleration foreseen to be used at ELI-NP
Project acronym: TEDILAPLAS
Implementation time: Oct. 2016 – Sept. 2019
MAIN GOAL OF THE PROJECT
- Spatial and temporal characterization of plasma resulted from high power laser interaction with matter, in order to predict optimal conditions for particle acceleration.
- Development of various complementary techniques for the plasma diagnostics, at each Laser shot, best suited for the conditions of ELI-NP experiments.
- Modality of implementation, of this plasma diagnostic techniques at particle acceleration experiments at ELI-NP infrastructure, particularly at E6 experimental area
SHORT PROJECT OVERVIEW
Three complementary methods for temporal based diagnosis of the acceleration plasma, which will be tested at CETAL facility in Magurele:
1. Transversal interferometry
2. Wavefront analysis
3.Single shot analysis of the transmitted probe pulse with temporal chirp
