Application of EO in accelerator researches
I have two project going on for now.
The first is an off-line EO sampling testing experiment, which uses laser generated THz radiation as the phantom of the electron beam. The goal is to demonstrate the coupling of EO technique with FROG, which inprinciple can use narrow band laser as a probe and can be accomplished in a single shot geomentry.
The experiment will be performed with a kHz, fs laser system (Spitfire 50, Spectraphysics).
The second project is to transfer the above mentioned technique for real electron beam measurement. Either from a traditional accelerator or from a laser plasma accelerator.
Collaborators: Robert Crowell (CHM, ANL), John Power (AWA, ANL), Paul Bolton (SLAC).
