Research Institution
Laser plasma accelerators have the potential to greatly reduce the cost and size of particle accelerators. A breakthrough in the gas profile used to accelerate the particles is required. Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation proposes to demonstrate a test bed system for tailoring the gas profile. With such a flexible tool experiments could be undertaken to benchmark simulations which are critical to understanding laser plasma accelerators. Commercial Applications and Other Benefits: Linear plasma accelerators have the potential to substantially reduce the costs of a particle accelerator. By developing an enabling technology, AASC can secure flagpole IP and license it to future accelerators.
