For intense, ps scale lasers, propagation through underdense plasmas results in forces which expel electrons from the laser axis, resulting in channel formation. Electrons can then be injected from the channel walls, which results in direct laser acceleration of these electrons and the occurrence of an electron beam of 100’s of MeV. Experiments performed at the OMEGA EP laser studied the
spatial properties and energy of an electron beam created via DLA mechanisms.
