Paper Abstract

A combination of a high-power CO2 laser synchronized to a 70 MeV high-brightness electron linear accelerator operated at the Brookhaven Accelerator Test Facility (ATF) provides a platform for exploring novel methods of particle acceleration, x-ray generation and other advanced areas of beam physics and applications. We review the latest results from the ATF laser/e-beam interaction and plasma experiments including: staged electron laser acceleration (STELLA), Thomson scattering, laser channeling in a capillary discharge, and plasma wake study.
