Quasi monoenergetic electron bunch generation by frequency variation laser pulse in magnetized plasma



AbstractThe effect of the frequency variation of laser pulse in uniform magnetized plasma is considered in one-dimensional laser wakefield acceleration and carried out particle simulation. It is shown that wakefield amplitude is increased threefold for the negative Gaussian chirped laser pulse in the magnetized plasma. In our simulation, electrons with initial energy about 0.3 MeV with initial energy spread about 10 % were trapped, effectively compressed in longitudinal direction and accelerated to ultra-relativistic energy about 1.3 GeV with final energy spread about 6 %.
