Oral Working Group 1 WG1


Prof. Karl Krushelnick (University of Michigan)


Experiments will be described which use the high intensity Hercules laser at the University of Michigan to generate energetic electron beams. These beams simultaneously generate ultra-short bursts of x-rays. Various techniques are used to enhance the x-ray emission which is then used for x-ray absorption spectroscopy with femtosecond resolution. Such electron beams from a LWFA were also used in experiments for the first production of pions from a laser.
