SourceLAB and our partner Smartshell are proud to propose the smartshot jet system, ideal for reliable laser wakefield acceleration of electron.

The wave-free supersonic pulsed gas jet system SMARTSHOT is developed as a gas target for laser-plasma interaction studies such as laser-plasma acceleration, X-ray lasers, laser-plasma X-ray sources, etc…

It can be used for the experimental studies which require the production of very localized high-density gas target with high repetition rate in vacuum.

The system uses a valve which can eject high-pressure gas (up to 7(10) MPa) through an orifice with large diameter.

The valve can be operated with high-speed opening and closing (100-200 µs) by proper driving pulse control.

The valve can open fully and provide a stable ejection pressure even under the condition of regulation pressure of 10 Mpa.

All SL-Noz class nozzles are compatible with SmartShot valve. In particular, special slit nozzle produces localized uniform gas jet in tiny region.

Maximum pressure 10 Mpa

High-speed open / close ~200 µs

Flat top ~1.8 ms (for Helium)

Rep. rate maximum 10 Hz

Typical density distribution of the gas jet

 

As shown in the interferogram image, the wave free nozzle can produce a supersonic laminar flow with sharp boundary between gas jet and vacuum.

In contrast to sonic injection, an uniform density distribution is formed inside triangular area at the exit of the nozzle
