The SL-ALC system

The SL-ALC-HI system is a motorized cell of adjustable length, conceived for laser-plasma interaction experiments at underdense regime, requiring mm-to-cm long stable medium in general (eacceleration and diffraction, inverse Compton scattering, γ-ray generation, X-ray laser, high harmonic generation), and Laser Wakefield Acceleration (LWFA) at high repetition rate in particular.

High-precision monitoring

Fully motorized and easy to align

Optimal plasma imaging conditions

Pulsed and regulated pressure modes

High-precision monitoring

Fully motorized and easy to align

Optimal plasma imaging conditions

Pulsed and regulated pressure modes

Unique instrument to fine-study with optical diagnostics the physics of laser-plasma interaction in underdense regime

This system is designed to offer perfectly reproducible laser-plasma interaction conditions. The solid and shielding metallic housing and specific in-out nozzle design enable very reproducible shots with a multi-Terawatt to Petawatt laser system without fatal damaging and dangerous light backscattering at normal laser incidence. The gas-tightness is tested for resisting up to few bars of flow pressure (approx. 1020 atoms/cm3 at normal temperature).

Typical electron spectra for different SL-ALC length configuration with a 40 TW laser system

 

Possible implementation for electron acceleration and plasma observation


Detailed specifications:

Performances: stable gaseous medium up to 50 mm length
Stepper motor minimal increment / rectitude: 0.5 µm / 5 µm
Vacuum compatibility: 10-6torr
Inlet pressure: Up to 4 bar

Nozzles diameter: From 100 µm up to 2 mm
Pulsed flow mode: Optional
Dimensions / mass:196 x 99 x 80 mm / 1.5 kg
