Staged laser driven electron acceleration experiment

We are currently half way through an electron acceleration experiment at the Central Laser Facility’s Gemini Laser, lead by our colleagues at Imperial College London. We aim to drive two laser wakefield accelerators independently, using two 200 TW laser beams and then couple the electron beam from the first stage into the second to boost the energy. The experiment is ongoing, so hoping for some good results soon!
