A hybrid of laser-wakefield and plasma-wakefield accelerators is proposed, in which an intense laser pulse is optically guided by a plasma channel created by the leading portion of a high-current, low-energy electron beam. This accelerator configuration appears to combine advantageously features of both laser-wakefield and plasma-wakefield accelerators.
