Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Stable, relativistic electron beams with up to 100 pC peak charge have been accelerated via injection into wakefields at a sharp density transition. The energy of the accelerator was tunable between 10 and 150 MeV. FIO/ LS Technical Digest
