Abstract

Ultrashort electron bunches are highly desirable for a large variety of applications, also they are intrinsically produced by novel techniques such as laser-plasma acceleration. However, diagnostics for ultrashort bunches remain a challenge, despite their importance for phase space optimization.
Here, we present a new method to diagnose the longitudinal phase space, which is based on the strong transverse fields of laser-driven wakefields. We demonstrate with simulations a temporal resolution well below one femtosecond.
