Abstract

Laser-driven particle accelerators have been conceived over the past decade to be the next-generation particle accelerators, promising super-high field particle acceleration and a compact size compared with conventional accelerators 1). Among a number of laser accelerator concepts, laser wakefield accelerators have great potential to produce ultra-highfield gradients of plasma waves excited by intense ultrashort laser pulses 2). Recently wakefield excitation of the order of ~10GeV/min a plasma has been directly confirmed by the use of a table-top-terawatt (T3) laser 3).
