Abstract

We discuss and present first results from the commissioning of the so-called LUX beamline for plasma-driven undulator radiation. This beamline is build within a close collaboration of the University of Hamburg and DESY, combining university research with the tools, philosophy and expertise of a large accelerator facility as a sound basis for robust performance for applications.

Summary

Within the LAOLA Collaboration, the University of Hamburg and DESY work closely together, combining university research with the expertise of a large accelerator facility, to enhance the performance of plasma accelerators for applications. Here, we discuss and present first results from the commissioning of the so-called LUX beamline for plasma-driven undulator radiation. The goal of LUX is to advanced laser-plasma acceleration towards reproducible performance, enabling beam transport and advanced phase space manipulation studies for operating a miniature undulator source.

We address the challenges of setting up the beamline in the environment of an accelerator facility, and describe laser operations, laser transport and diagnostics, as well as the target area, plasma target, electron beam transport and diagnostics.
