Paper Abstract

Numerical modeling of laser wakefield electron accelerator inside a long (~ 1 m) dielectric capillary tube is presented. Simulations were performed in a quasi-linear regime of laser wakefield acceleration using a quasi-static particle code, WAKE [ P. Mora and T.M.Antonsen, Jr., Phys. Plasmas 4, 217(1997)]. The code was modified to simulate the acceleration of an externally injected electron bunch and guiding of the laser inside a dielectric capillary tube. Results of simulations demonstrating the acceleration of the injected electron bunch to multi-GeV (~ 5 GeV) energies are discussed.
