Effect of laser polarization on the electron pointing jitter in LWFA

by Daniel Seipt (Helmholtz Institut Jena)


Experimental results show a laser polarization dependent contribution to electron beam pointing jitter in laser wakefield acceleration. We develop a theoretical model for the polarization dependence in terms of the transverse dynamics of trapped electrons, resonantly driven by bubble oscillations. The latter are generated by the carrier wave dispersion at the self-steepened laser pulse front.
