  Staging of conventional accelerators and advanced plasma-based accelerators can boost the beam energy while at the same time better control the beam quality, therefore it is essential for high-energy applications such as TeV-level colliders. Here we present the first successful demonstration of external injection from a linear accelerator (LINAC) into a laser wakefield accelerator (LWFA) and the subsequent acceleration with ~100% capture efficiency. Stable 31MeV, 20fC electron beams from the LINAC were velocity bunched to the length of ~15fs (r.m.s.) in the high-gradient photocathode RF gun and then external injected into the linear wakefield excited by the 10TW, 42fs laser. The experimental results show that nearly all the electrons can be mono-energetically accelerated and the maximum energy gain reaches 1.8MeV in a 6-mm long plasma, corresponding to an average gradient of about 300MV/m. High capture efficiency of external injection has also been systematically validated by 3D PIC simulations. This paves the way toward the development of high-energy particle accelerators for future colliders.

The EuPRAXIA project aims at designing the world’s first accelerator based on plasma-wakefield advanced technique, which can deliver a 5 GeV electron beam with simultaneously high charge, low emittance and low energy spread to user’s communities. Such challenging objectives can only have a chance to be achieved when particular efforts are dedicated to identify the subsequent issues and to find the way to solve them. Many injection/acceleration schemes and techniques have been explored by means of thorough simulations in more than ten European institutes to sort out the most appropriate ones. The specific issues of high charge, high beam quality and beam extraction then transfer to the user’s applications, have been tackled with many innovative approaches*. This article highlights the different advanced methods that have been employed by the EuPRAXIA collaboration and the preliminary results obtained. The needs in terms of laser and plasma parameters for such an accelerator are also summarized.

Collinear beam-driven structure wakefield acceleration (SWFA) is an advanced acceleration technique that could support the compact generation of high-energy beams for future multi-user x-ray free-electron-laser facilities*. Producing an ideal shaped drive beam through phase space manipulation is crucial for an efficient SWFA. Controlling the final longitudinal-phase space of the drive beam necessitate staged beam manipulations during acceleration. This paper describes the preliminary design of an accelerator beamline capable of producing drive beam with tailored current distribution and longitudinal-phase-space correlation. The proposed design is based on simple analytical models combined in a 1-D longitudinal beam-dynamics simulation tracking program supporting forward and backward (time reversal) tracking.
