Energy Gain, Stability, and Bunching in Gas-Loaded Hermite-Gaussian Laser Linac Academic Article uri icon


  • Gas-loaded Hermite-Gaussian laser linacs yield greater gain and interaction lengths then vacuum linacs, however, optical beam and drift tube damage are not adequately alleviated in uniformly loaded devices. These problems can be resolved if the loading is graded so as to accommodate the phase velocity variation of the laser beam.
