The recent implementation of the quasi-3D algorithm into OSIRIS now make it possible to study scaling laws for LWFAs operating in the blowout regime for higher laser energies. We find that self-guiding is possible to at least 26 Rayleigh lengths, reaching energies above 10GeV. We then study how to optimize the energy gain for fixed laser energy by shortening the pulse length and reducing the plasma density.
